Question description

After reading about the physical impairments related to age in Chapter 4 of the textbook and watching “Aging,” visit “Sociology of Aging: Age Related Impairments: A Simulation Exercise” and select at least two of the impairments that are listed in the exercise. After selecting the impairments that you will be simulating, use the household items that are listed and proceed with carrying out your normal tasks around your home. Then, describe which impairments you simulated and what you experienced. Answer the following questions:

  1. What was it like to complete your tasks with the selected impairments?
  2. What were the difficulties that you encountered while completing your tasks? Were any of those difficulties unexpected?
  3. Have your thoughts or attitudes about older adults who have the impairments that you selected changed as a result of this exercise? Why or why not?
  4. After having reviewed the required resources for this discussion, which of the major biological theories on aging do you think best explains the impairments that you simulated? Be sure to support your answer.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
