2019 TKR How to to stop worrying and learn to appreciate ageism

How to to stop worrying 
and learn to appreciate ageism
A lady who is getting old sets the record straight on ageism and the myths of the old folks home in a rapid fire talk that few young people could match.  

  Watch on YouTube
A World Without Ageism with author and activist Ashton Applewhite. What would age equality look like? We’re barraged by messages that encourage a fear of old age. Many of us assume that with older age comes poor health and failing capabilities, so much so that the increase in life expectancy is often viewed as a negative trend. Ageing, however, is a natural, lifelong, powerful process, and, in fact, the older people get, the less afraid they are of dying. So why all the negativity? Ashton Applewhite uncovers the roots of ageism and shows how ageist myths and stereotypes cripple the way our brains and bodies function.
