Ageism is when someone treats an older person badly because of their age, like believing older people can’t make decisions for themselves, using patronising names, or making so-called jokes about ageing. In 2021, OPAN marked International Day of Older Persons and Australia’s inaugural Ageism Awareness Day with a conversation about ageism, its impact, and how we can each play a part in combatting harmful stereotypes.
