What is Ageism? Ageism refers to prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination against people based on their age, particularly against older individuals. It involves treating individuals unfairly or differently because of their age, and can take various forms, such as negative attitudes, language, or behavior towards older adults. Ageism can be explicit or implicit, intentional or unintentional, and can occur in various settings, including the workplace, healthcare, media, and public policy. It can have serious consequences for the well-being, health, and quality of life of older individuals, as well as for society as a whole. Shervan K Shahhian
