How do you think that ageism passes from one generation to the next, or is this unique to each generation?

A

Ageism changes from one generation to the next, influenced by historical traditions, economic situations, and social perceptions of elders. In antiquity and the Middle Ages, the role of elders as keepers of knowledge and wisdom was revered and respected (Achenbaum, 2015). Older adults played a major role in the life of the community. With the advances of modern technology, the role of elders as keepers of knowledge is diminished significantly, and they became ostracized by the rest of the society because of their disabilities, either real or perceived.
