1. Describe two different ways of categorizing or classifying those who have reached late adulthood (note – these should not be retired Vs not tired, but ways in which the elderly can be categorized into at least 3 different “levels”). Which is more useful? Why?
2. How socially connected should the elderly be? Take a position and support it with research.
3. What do a two-year-old and an 80-year-old have in common? (multiple correct answers – just be sure that you have explained yourself – and you have stated something that is not true about every age)
4. What do we mean by “qualitative” Vs “quantitative” change? What qualitative changes happen in late adulthood? What quantitative changes happen in late adulthood? Give two examples of each for full credit.
5. If you were placing a relative into a nursing home, what features would you look for in that home – and why?
