August 15, 2019: A Cruel Irony: Ageism and Ableism in Senior Living Environments
Guide: Jill Vitale-Aussem, President & CEO of The Eden Alternative

We know that our society is full of ageist and ableist messaging. Senior living communities should be a safe haven from this barrage of negativity, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, some of the most damaging examples of ageism and ableism occur right under our noses as residents living with frailty or different abilities are marginalized, ostracized and segregated from the rest of the population. This webinar will expose some of the most common examples of ageism and ableism in community living settings and provide tools to begin to build a culture of inclusivity.
