Aging vs Ageism


Event Phone: 204-987-8850

Ageism is the stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination against people based on their age. It is an insidious practice which has harmful effects on the health of older adults. For older people, ageism is an everyday challenge. Overlooked for employment, and stereotyped in the media, ageism marginalises and excludes older people in their communities.

This presentation will focus on commonly held views of ageing and older persons and how these attitudes lead to the marginalization of older people in our communities and the negative effect on their health and wellbeing.

Presenter: Jeannette Brigit, Home Instead Senior Care
