Age-Specific Competencies: Persons generally grow and develop in stages that are related to their age. Age specific competence means that the employee is aware of physical, psychosocial and/or learning needs of patients of different ages. Employees consider these needs when planning and providing care for the patient or when interacting with the patient or family.
Human development can be divided into eight stages. In each stage the individual has a primary task to accomplish or master. Each task is important throughout the life span but is most critical at a particular stage.
• Infant (0-1 year): The infant must learn to trust that his/her needs will be met.
• Toddler (1-3 years): The toddler must learn to develop a sense of himself as an independent person and gain self-confidence and self-control.
• Pre-school child (3-6 years): The pre-school child must develop a sense if initiating (being able to explore the world and start projects).
• School age child (6-12 years): The school age child must develop a sense to his/her own self-worth through accomplishments and interaction with others.
• Adolescent (13-20 years): the adolescent must develop his/her own identity.
• Young adult (21-43 years): The young adult must develop close relationships.
• Middle adult (44-65 years): The middle adult must develop a sense of community and assume responsibility for others.
• Older adult (65 years and older): The older adult must come to understand the meaning of his/her life in terms of what has been accomplished.
