Antidotes for Ageism: A Guide to Age-Inclusive Healthcare - Friday, April 14, 12:00 noon – 1 PM at the Pagosa Senior Center
Archuleta Seniors, Inc., will be taking part in the on-line viewing of the film and discussion, Antidotes for Ageism, an original production of Changing the Narrative and the Boulder County Area Agency on Aging. Come join us.
As the Changing the Narrative website (https://changingthenarrativeco.org/) states: “The film introduces how ageism shows up in healthcare and what we can do about it. Did you know that ageism is a risk factor that impacts social, emotional, and physical health? It shortens lifespans and increases social isolation.”
“Ageism shows up in systems, societal beliefs, and policies: fewer medical students becoming geriatricians, older people historically excluded from clinical trials, and the pervasiveness of ageism during the pandemic. People suffer unnecessarily when structures and systems are consciously or unconsciously rife with ageism.”
The film, 16 minutes, is a compilation of interviews with professionals who serve older adults and are experts in their fields. Learn from their insights about what ageism is and how it shows up in healthcare settings. Inspire your community to take actionable steps that will remove ageism from healthcare.
If you would like to have lunch, you must call or text 970.264.2167 before Friday or by 9AM Friday. The lunch is Pork Ramen Bowl, Spring Roll, Garden Salad and Fruit. Suggested donation is $10 to cover costs, but not required
