The vast majority of older Americans live independently and enjoy their lives. So why is our view of late life so bleak? The answer is ageism, a topic that journalist Ashton Applewhite explores on her popular blog This Chair Rocks. This talk, subtitled “How Ageism Warps Our View of Long Life” and part of the Planet Talk “Bold Ideas in Aging” series, brings her insights and findings – as well as her humor – straight to the Senior Planet community.
