Assessment of the Elderly (a COA elective course) 

What tools are available to those working in the area of elder care to assess the mental and physical health of those 65 years of age and older? This course (1) introduces students to screening and assessment tools employed in the evaluation of elder health for the purpose of maximizing independence and/or for the development of treatment plans, and (2) examines the sensitivity, specificity, validity, and reliability of such tools. Some attention is paid to how these tools are used to help health care professionals make decisions in an effort to reduce health care costs; and to the outcome of such efforts -- namely, their potential to help individuals live longer, healthier lives through primary and secondary prevention.

Jessica Rowe, LCSW-C, provides Aging Life Care™ management to older adults and their families in Central Maryland. She has been an adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work teaching Clinical Social Work with Aging and Families.
