Abstract
Ingrained negative stereotypes of older people frequently persist within families in the same way they do in the broader community, creating barriers to intergenerational relationships and limiting the opportunities and potential contributions for older family members. How easy is it to resist ageism? What are the common pitfalls and how can they be avoided?
