Each May, the Administration for Community Living leads the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month (OAM). "The 2024 theme is Powered by Connection, which recognizes the profound impact that meaningful relationships and social connections have on our health and well-being" (OAM 2024). National Center to Reframe Aging is dedicated to ending ageism by advancing an equitable and complete story about aging in America. The center is a trusted source for proven communication strategies and tools to effectively frame aging issues. As a trained national facilitator, Theresa Edelstein is teaching two sessions focused on raising awareness of ageism and how it manifests itself in society and in healthcare settings, recognizing our inherent ageist views, learning and incorporating new ways of talking about aging and interacting with older adults, identifying the traps we fall into when we communicate about aging, and changing the aging paradigm to one that is focused on aging as another of life’s developmental stages filled with purpose.

  • Identify the communication traps associated with aging;
