Discussion Reframing Aging and Impact on Services to Older Adults

by Fatima Perkins on Mon, Oct 24, 2016 at 12:20 pm

Greetings Everyone,

We have uploaded two very informative and thought provoking documents into our files. If you have an interest in services to a mature population, you will definitely want to take a look. The documents are:

  • Revera Report on Ageism-Independence and Choice
  • Reframing Aging, Tony Sarmiento, Executive Senior Service America Inc.

We look forward to any discussion these documents may generate on the topic of ageism and how it impacts the work of libraries.

Warmest Regards,
