Adults in the stage of middle to late adulthood are  experiencing difficult changes in their physical and  cognitive abilities as a result of aging.  The tasks  which were once natural, such as communicating  and walking, may become challenging.  Many  adults find comfort in spirituality and receive  physical and emotional aid through relatives and  caregivers.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
