Gerontologists are aware of life transitions and experiences encountered through those transitions. Some examples may include retirement, end-of-life planning, and losing loved ones. These are all a part of the aging process. Gerontologists are prepared to help people navigate the long-term care system and are able to connect older individuals with organizations that can meet their needs.
