January 27, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Donaldson Room, Town Offices
January 27, 2020, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM @ Bemis Hall
Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, at 12:30 pm when Michelle Tristani discusses “Ageism and the Language We Use.” Despite today's heightened sensibilities and belief in diversity, the majority of older persons have experienced ageism. Language carries and conveys meanings that feed assumptions and judgments that can lead to the development of stereotypes and discrimination. When treated and spoken to as if negative stereotypes and prejudices about aging were actually true, older people can experience diminished self-regard and their functional health can worsen over time as a result. In contrast, those with positive perceptions of aging live longer. Join Corporate Director of Memory Care with Benchmark Senior Living Michelle Tristani for this presentation that outlines steps each of us can take to counteract ageism, discrimination, and stereotyping on the basis of age. The goal is for all of us to foster pride in aging.
