This module introduces students to the four perspectives of ageing, namely chronological ageing, biological ageing, psychological ageing, and sociological ageing. Students will appreciate the knowledge that the meaning of ageing is more than chronological age. Mental function, personality, and changes in a person’s roles and relationships are all playing a part in the ageing process.
This module equips the students with knowledge on the processes and problems associated with ageing. In addition, students will gain practical knowledge on the promotion of cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, muscular fitness, and good posture in the elderly.
