Elder Wisdom

#ElderWisdom Quote by Ron Schlegel

Ageism is a form of discrimination, particularly experienced by seniors.  Our Elders have a great deal of wisdom to contribute to their communities.  However, societal norms marginalize seniors, treat them with disrespect, make them feel unwelcome and otherwise generalize as if they were all the same.  In June we celebrated the Wisdom of the Elder through a Social Media campaign called #ElderWisdom.

Continue the conversation on Social Media using the #ElderWisdom tag and share the wisdom our elders have to offer their communities
