Competency: Adult
and Older Services

Sub-Category: Designs and implements library
services to engage and meet the needs of the community

 

 

By
2030, projections indicate that 25% of the US population will be 65 or older.

This
means that libraries will be serving a steadily increasing number of older
patrons and their care partners. To help you understand and adapt to these
patrons' changing needs you're invited to attend this interactive program.

 

In
this informative program, you'll experience an empathy-building aging
simulation activity and we'll also address biases on aging and how to
communicate with older adults who are confused. 


You will also have the opportunity
to recognize what you are already doing well, and learn how to hone your skills
in meeting the unique needs of individual patrons in this age group.

 

Outcomes
for this program include:

 

·        

Increasing
your awareness and knowledge concerning various aspects of the aging process

·        

Developing
empathy for older adults' functional losses and related feelings

·        

Identifying
at least one thing you are already doing well in meeting the needs of older
adult patrons (and their care partners), and one action you can take to enhance
the elder-friendly environment at your library

 

Join
Hope Klein Levy for this fun and engaging professional development opportunity,
which is likely to help you enhance service to the community, while improving
your own job satisfaction.
