Promoting Anti-Ageist Attitudes in Aged Care

Cover image for: Promoting Anti-Ageist Attitudes in Aged Care

Lecture Overview

Research shows there is a poor understanding of the predominance of ability and independence among older adults in the community, with society often failing to give credit to their ability and contributions. In this presentation, aged care consultant Rilla Roberts dissects ageism in aged care and challenges these attitudes, promoting a healthier and rewarding environment for both the older client and their carers.
