ASST: Aging Sensitivity Simulation Training

ASST Training at the ESAHECASST is based on the success of the GAIT (Geriatric Assessment Interdisciplinary Team) model. The ASST program is a hands-on workshop utilizing props, individual and group activities, and discussions to promote understanding, empathy, and sensitivity to the sensory losses of the elderly.

Program Activities

  • Hand-outs describing normal sensory changes that occur with aging.
  • Interactive exercises that utilize props such as ear plugs, cotton tipped vinyl gloves and special eye-glasses which simulate changes in hearing, tactile abilities, and vision common in senior’s ability to perform activities of daily living.
  • Group discussions that promote understanding, empathy, and sensitivity to the need for elder friendly responses when communicating with older people.

ASST training has proven to be effective in teaching participants to experience the effect of sensory losses that are common to the process of aging. It has been successful in helping people to identify their own personal attitudes toward the elderly
