Textbook Discussion Question:
After reviewing the Psychosocial Care of the Elderly source found in the
Learning Materials in Module 3, discuss surprising facts about the psychosocial
care of the aging. Did you originally consider any of these as myths, when in

caregivers and the public about aging?
Your initial posting should be at least 400 words in length and utilize
at least one scholarly source other than the textbook. No title page needed. References do not count toward word count.
