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 celebrate the Wisdom of the Elder through a Social Media campaign called #ElderWisdom.
Join us this June as Seniors from accross Schlegel Villages will visit their local High School and share wisdom with students.
