Are you an ageist?
Ageism includes both attitudes and beliefs towards older adults, as well as actions resulting from these attitudes and beliefs. Ageism can take many forms. While society widely condemns other forms of discrimination such as racism and sexism, ageism remains accepted and unchallenged in many circumstances. Some examples of ageism include:
- jokes about a person’s age and making fun of older adults in general
- workplace or health care policies that discriminate against older adults
- older adults being patronized, ignored, or insulted
- assuming that an older adult is incapable of making their own decisions
- older adults being offered different screenings or medical treatments than individuals in other age group
