Online Buzz: Join the Latest Senior Citizen Craze and Go Back to College!

Today’s college-bound senior citizens are setting the pace for future generations to never stop learning. Will you be one of them?

Greater numbers of older adults are finding themselves back in the classroom, and community colleges are among the most popular choice for returning to higher education. Seniors are enrolling in school for a number of reasons, some of which are to learn a new career, update job skills, attain a goal or pursue a hobby. According to the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), of the 1,200 community colleges nationwide, nearly 90 percent offer courses for older students.

Typically seniors are more than making the grade because they are well-prepared for class and are not hesitant to speak up and contribute. Yet the learning challenges of baby boomers include lack of computer and Internet skills and know-how for applying for financial aid.

Learn how seniors can brush up their computer skills and locate the perfect college match in the Right at Home blog, where you will always find the latest information about family caregiving and home care.
