This week

So I'm taking a corse in Instructional Design and learning to create online course. Here is my lovely graphic that I put together in Inspriration about the "Dying Process." ( the group I was assigned to. We are doing an online course as a service project for a Hospice group in Orlando. Death is that ugly thing that no one wants to talk about.

What is interesting though it the information about the people who are home health care aides: welfare to work or immigrants, mostly women, no insurance benefits, paid around $8.00 and no training that will help them better themselves. There is a 45% to 100% turn over rate. Demand will grow as baby boomers begin to age. Looks like this might be a problem for lots of boomers.
