What is Gerontology?
Gerontology is the study of the ageing processes and individuals as they grow from middle-age through later life, and includes:
- the application of this knowledge to policies and programs.
- the study of physical, mental and social changes in older people as they age
- the investigation of the changes in society resulting from our ageing population
