Ageism is a prejudice against the elderly. The term first appeared around 1969 and is defined as stereotyping or discrimination against individuals or groups based upon their elderly age. Unfortunately, there are many stigmas against the elderlyhttps://t.co/fjuuNxJtNH pic.twitter.com/HSty812Hfs— Senior Moves Australia (@seniormovesaust) September 3, 2021
Nearly every elderly person wants to stay in the privacy and comfort of their own home for as long as possible. That’s why nearly a third of seniors don’t live in a care facility live alone, including about half of women over the age of 75.https://t.co/7PZgJGVIty pic.twitter.com/ozK09qz5Wx— Senior Moves Australia (@seniormovesaust) September 3, 2021
