Let’s smash ageism!

Everybody forgets things from time to time. It’s true your recall may not be as good as it once was. But as this writer tells us, that’s a normal part of aging, and it’s different to the cognitive impairment that can herald the onset of dementia.

Ageism may be the one remaining socially acceptable bias. We know that language makes a difference, so stop calling your lapses of memory ‘senior moments’. Stay involved, stay connected, help a neighbor or friend, get outside and move for a half-hour most days, and nourish your body and soul.

Take a moment to reflect on how you can make a difference in this world. And happy Thanksgiving, however/if you celebrate it!
