SFC Recognized for Course on Geriatric and Senior Care

Health Promotions Class on Death, Loss & Grief Earns Accolad

The St. Francis College Health Promotions Course, Death, Loss & Grief has been selected by Assisted Living Today as a Top 20 College Course for Geriatrics and Senior Care.

Assisted Living Today, a source of senior care news and information, placed St. Francis on the list based on a collection of “quantitative measures and metrics from a number of educational resources, as well as our own research coupled with the input of the senior living editorial staff at Assisted Living Today.”

“In the next 20 years the number of senior citizens in the United States will almost double,” said Health Promotions Professor Ellen Glascock. “That means the need for knowledge on effectively treating and communicating with geriatrics is fast becoming even more essential for professionals in the health care field.”

Death, Loss, and Grief teaches future health care practitioners about how dealing with death is interwoven with patterns of living. It focuses on specific issues like euthanasia and the right to die as well alternative sites for dying like the hospital, hospice, and home. Religious and cultural burial customs; the bereavement process and definitions of life and death are also discussed along with how things like family, religion, medicine and economy will affect health care workers.

“The course appeals to students from many majors and is an elective for Health Promotion majors, some of whom go on to careers in nursing homes and eldercare,” added Professor Glascock.

You can see all the courses on the Assisted Living list on their website.

St. Francis College, founded in 1859 by the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, is located in

Brooklyn Heights, N.Y. Since its founding, the College has pursued its Franciscan mission to provide

an affordable, high-quality education to students from New York City’s five boroughs and beyond.
