About

Gerontology blog collage

Madonna University’s Department of Aging Studies is committed to preparing its students to address the concerns of an aging population, and to promote the potential of people in their later years through its gerontology curriculum, field placements, and role in the aging services community serving older adults in Southeastern Michigan. This blog complements our mission, by providing fresh ideas and perspectives on aging contributed by those in our gerontology community, including current students, as well as alumni, current and former faculty, field placement supervisors, and others from the community who are committed to the business of aging.

Last year we revised our online Aging and Older Adult Certificate of Completion and developed an online Dementia Care Certificate of Completion.  Starting Fall, 2016, we’ll be offering both online and face-to-face the Nursing Home Administration Certificate of Completion, which prepares individuals to take the Michigan nursing home administrator licensure exams.

    We are a group of mainly but not exclusively Applied Positive Psychologists (MAPP) and have just started a new non-profit website thepositivepsychologypeople.com we will be starting a section on positive aging and would welcome any comments, articles or contribution. Please look at the website to see if it interests you. We already have 4 universities working with us (UK, Malta, Portugal, Dubai) as will become apparent in the next few weeks. Our aim is to connect, inspire, share, learn and educate. Thank you
