Learning is a lifelong activity and older adults are not so distinctive to merit a special methodology of learning. Yet, it remains that older adults inhabit a physical, psychic, and social realm that is to some extent different from that experienced by middle aged adults. Hence, the term ‘geragogy’ in this chapter’s title. Geragogy, as it is employed in this chapter, refers to the need to fine-tune adult learning teaching and instructional styles to aid the learning experiences of older adults who are generally post-work and post-family, and sometimes, frail and with intellectual limitations.
