What is Ageism? Ageism is an often overlooked barrier that exists across most communities in the U.S. Ageism puts unfair limitations on older adults’ abilities to live to their fullest potential and devalues them as individuals (Source: www.stopageismnow.org). Ageism can be…
- Prejudicial attitudes toward older people old age and/or the aging process;
- Discriminatory practices against older people;
- Institutional practices and policies that perpetuate stereotypes about aging.
As part of the Middlesex County Gatekeeper Program mission to advocate for successful aging & independence, we are committed to building awareness, breaking down stereotypes and challenging attitudes to Stop Ageism Now. In the upcoming months we will campaign to Stop Ageism Now as well as in the coming years work to create a culture in Middlesex County whereby we celebrate the life experiences and achievements of older individuals. Our ultimate goal is to bring back the belief that aging is a natural part of life and not a problem to be solved.
WE HOPE YOU’LL COME & PARTICPATE IN A MIDDLESEX STOP-AGEISM-NOW CAMPAIGN LOCAL FORUM
