A gerontologist is someone who studies how people grow and change as they get older. They help people to understand what happens to their bodies, how they might feel about growing old, and what they might need to be happy in the future.
Counselors, teachers and doctors may also be gerontologists. A gerontologist can help people in a lot of other ways. For ex-ample: they can work with businesses or the government on how to make life better for older people, or they may design parks, houses or other buildings so that people are more comfortable in them as they age. Another thing they can do is to manage groups or activities that are designed for older persons.
