PSYC2740 Adult Development and Aging Unit 4 Discussion DQ1The Use of Technology in Long-Term Care In the past several years, there have been many advances in technology designed to support the adult and aging population in their day-to-day lives. For example, medical alert necklaces (“Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”) and lift chairs that assist seniors in rising from a sitting position. Many of these technologies allow seniors to continue to live independently in their homes for a longer period of time, and in some cases, save the lives of people who choose to live alone. For this discussion, search the Capella library, the Internet, local publications, et cetera, and find a senior-assisted technology that you find interesting. Share the results of your search—why it interests you, how it works, and why it is of such value to seniors. Share your source of information; additionally, support your post with a minimum of one scholarly journal article related to the chosen technology. DQ2 Cultural Response to End-of-Life Issues The practices and customs surrounding death can vary depending upon culture, religion, and sometimes geographical location. For example, one family may choose immediate burial, while other cultures traditions include practices such as visitations and prayer services that can last for a number of days. There are also practices such as burial at sea, cremation, and scattering of the ashes in a variety of locations for sentimental reasons. For this discussion, discuss the practices that surround death and dying as they relate to cultures and/or traditions that you practice, or that are of interest to you. Describe the practices, and what drives them. Support your post with materials that can provide further information for your peers.
