Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, at 12:30 pm when Michelle Tristani discusses “Ageism and the Language We Use.” Despite today's heightened sensibilities and belief in diversity, the majority of older persons have experienced ageism. Language carries and conveys meanings that feed assumptions and judgments that can lead to the development of stereotypes and discrimination. When treated and spoken to as if negative stereotypes and prejudices about aging were actually true, older people can experience diminished self-regard and their functional health can worsen over time as a result. In contrast, those with positive perceptions of aging live longer. Join Corporate Director of Memory Care with Benchmark Senior Living Michelle Tristani for this presentation that outlines steps each of us can take to counteract ageism, discrimination, and stereotyping on the basis of age. The goal is for all of us to foster pride in aging.

Join Stephen Collins for a free four-session interactive seminar on the poetry of Robert Frost on Saturday, January 4, 11, 18, and 25 at 2 pm. The program will be at the Lincoln Library on January 4, 11, and 25 and at Bemis Hall on January 18. It is sponsored by the Council on Aging and the Public Library. According to Collins, “Robert Frost, in my opinion, is an underread and often misunderstood poet. He doesn’t fit easily into any preconceived category, however, that is precisely what some people have tried to do with him. We will work with some of his better known poems as well as some that never seem to get much attention.” Stephen Collins, a native of Cambridge, performs one-man shows and teaches courses on historical figures like Melville, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, James MacNeill Whistler, and Shakespeare.
This program is cosponsored by the Friends of the Lincoln Library& The Friends of the Lincoln COA
