Research in Social Work
Older Adults

CHHS  >  Social Work  >  Research

Our faculty’s research in gerontology examines multiple issues facing older adults.

Faculty are exploring issues of health and aging, end-of-life issues and patients’ autonomy in health care settings, the need for supportive services for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers, and the potential caregiving relationship that exists between grandparents and grandchildren residing within grandparent-headed households.
