In this session we will discuss the meaning of age, the process of aging and the impact of ageism, as well as the implications of these for clinical and community service providers of elders. We will challenge common myths and assumptions about elders and the aging process and consider how age intersects with other personal characteristics to further compound potential discrimination.
