1. From the health chart list the t Show more Biology Of Aging DEMOGRAPHIC QUESTIONS 1. From the health chart list the top 5 chronic diseases in an older population? 2. a) Of the five in question 1 which one(s) can be reduced over time? Explain. b) Which one do you feel will increase with the aging population (lifestyle vs. late-onset) Explain. 3. List the top 5 top causes of death in an older population. Do you feel any one of these can be reduced? Explain. 4. In the article Demographic article the first paragraph the impact on health has an incorrect statement. Can you explain what is wrong? 5. If a person reaches 65 and is healthy what can be their expected life expectancy? What will it be if they are not healthy? 6. In the US which racial group and associated gender has the lowest life expectancy b. What it the life expectancy of Blacks at 65 years of age? Looking at the same graph explain why? 7. a. What is the current percentage and numbers of older Americans over 65 in the US? b. What will the percentage and numbers is by 2030? C. What will account for this large increase? 8. a) In the article shrinking population what implication does this have on the future workforce in the US? b) Why is this concern for the aging population and the economy of health care cost? (Refer to the Shrinking Population article). 9. What is the fastest growing age segment in the US? 10. Describe 4 reasons why aging is a female issue. 11. Discuss what is contributing to the increase in life expectancy in the US (see Demographic and Lifespan articles)? 12. Who are the majority caregivers providing chronic care to the older population? 13. Which racial population has the greatest percent change in the 65 and older? AGING 1. Explain the following terms describing aging. a. successful aging b. usual aging. c. age related changes d. age associated changes 2. Explain how the interaction of genes lifestyle environment determine successful aging vs. usual aging 3. Explain which aging changes related or associated will be experienced by everyone sometime in their life AGING CURVE QUESTIONS 1. What are the three stages of life (Refer to the curve chart)? 2. What age starts senescence? (Refer to Death by Age a Myth article) 3. What is fragility? Explain if fragility is age related or age associated (Read Fragility article). 4. a) Describe senescence. Is this a normal stage in aging? b) Eventually do all older individuals reach this stage? If so do all older individuals experience the same vitality? c) Explain using the two types of aging based on the definitions in the tutorial 5. In your readings and in the aging curve there is an explanation as to why there is an increase then a decrease in vitality. What is this explanation? WHAT AFFECTS AGING QUESTIONS 1. a) What may be some late onset genetic diseases that do not show until older life? b) is this an example of negative genes? Explain (Refer to the top ten causes of death and chronic problems chart). 2. a) Describe the four main factors that contribute to aging? b) Give an example for each one (based on the learning resources) that may result in age associated changes resulting in a decline in vitality 3. We know that genes plays a major role in determining aging but explain if they continue to play such a major role in the older population ( Refer to Aging and Genes article)? HOLISTIC VIEW Refer to the Wheel of Aging in the Learning Resource section. 1. Describe at least two positive examples from each of the disciplines on the rim of the wheel on how each impact on the aging population (you have to think of them). 2. Describe at least two negative examples from each of the disciplines on the rim of the wheel on how each impact on the aging population (you have to think of this). DEFINITIONS 1.
