Changing the Culture of Ageism

Jeff Rubin, author and advocate for positive aging, shares these thoughts about how we can start (or continue) to value insights about our lives observed by people of all ages, from young children to older adults.

 

Maybe take these powerful ideas into your day as you begin 2019.

  • Honor the right of every individual to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their age, ability, station, or income.
  • Take stock in the abundance of human capital available to us at every season of a person’s life
  • Empower those whose insights, experience, and wisdom are seldom sought or rarely heard
  • Promote intergenerational dialogue, planning, and action on issues impacting the quality of life for people of all ages
  • Protect the safety and well-being of older people to live out their lives without being forced to choose between food or medication, or the fear of becoming isolated or alone.
