- About Us
Everyone at every point in life needs either care or support. Caring for one another, to many, is what makes us human. Professional care for the elderly is a growing profession that demands qualified individuals with the know-how and passion to support the needs of the elderly.
The gerontology certificate from Parkside shows potential employers that you have the educational experience necessary to relate to the needs of our aging population and that you are motivated and prepared to work in this field.
A program that includes internships and in-field experience will introduce students to professional career opportunities.
