Welcome to Part II of our series on adult education in elder care settings! At Bay View Assisted Living (and at our sister locations, Mesa View Senior Assisted Living and Harbor View Senior Assisted Living) we work hard to incorporate adult education principles into our programs!
Every person on earth is born with a desire to learn. The learning process happens naturally within a social context and learning is an experiential process as well as a cognitive process. There are some important differences between the way children might be educated and the way that adult learners respond best to education. The principles of adult learning and education have important implications for individuals living in elder care or memory care communities.
