While we see these things all of the time, it is sad how discouraging they are instead of recognizing the grace that has brought most to these ages
Denise Vassar
57:26
Have highlighted my hair to cover gray hair.
Bernadette Michael
57:49
Color my hair
Teri Kennedy-Flynn
57:58
As a 20 year old, people often assume that I have no knowledge or passion. I am a recreation coordinator and I absolutely love the work that I do. Some people just don't take me seriously
Jacqueline Stanford-Fenner
58:18
I feel like I have touched on all of the above at some point in time. I wish I was more comfortable in my own aging process
Meaghan McMahon

Kimberly Grandal
58:33
I lied about my age when I was younger...made myself older. ;-)
Jennifer Rassi
58:38
very sad
Stephen Klotz
58:42
I haven't lie or denied my age, but I hated turning 30 ("no longer young") and I wasn't too sure about turning 60 -- but I'm glad to be living. I do use my age to defend my hearing loss.
sarah leslie
59:00
I’ve turned 30 for 3 years now
Cathy Lieblich
59:13
I did the same, Denise. I have finally decided to let my gray grow in. I have to admit that the virus situation gave me the impetus to do so.
Nancy Lowney
59:13
I hear you, this year I'll be fffffffffifty, lol
Johanna Applegate
59:25
There is a lot of media messages about aging which boosts the anti-aging industry but is detrimental to our self esteem/image. My mother who is still working at the age of 68 is constantly worried about ageism and is willing to tolerate a lot more than most would in the workplace because she fears being 'let go' because she can't keep up with her job. She won't put her picture on her facebook profile because she is afraid of people discriminating against her age if she is job hunting.
Maren Singer
59:36
I showed my mom my first grey hairs on my wedding day LOL
Sara Price
59:54
Turning the big 4-0 in 6 days!
Jacqueline Stanford-Fenner
01:00:11
Happy early Birthday Sara
Joyce Quintrell
01:00:11
I look much younger than I am, at 63 no one believes me, but I was taken aback when I was charged the sr. price for coffee
Ashley Radano
01:00:19
Growing older is a gift that is taken away from so many. Cherish each year and each moment.
Emily Lubin
01:00:36
As a 30 year old with gray hair- I see coloring hair differently.
Jennifer Rassi
01:00:57
I've had gray hair since I was 14 years old.
Maren Singer
01:01:02
Emily L- same. It is still slow for me but I plan on EMBRACING IT :)
Sara Price
01:01:04
Thank you Jacqueline!
Cathy Lieblich
01:01:21
I believe in celebrating every birthday and telling the truth about my age because it’s something to be proud of .
Cheryl Clement-Reichling
01:01:21
Never lied about my age, but im sure steroeotyped hight shcool kids making fun on new drivers look oh watch out on the road and such. Stereotyping people hurt them so much.
Jennifer Rassi
01:01:42
aches and pains
Sherri Bianco
01:01:42
I say "Age is just a number" :) Sherri Bianco
Brenda Shafer-Pellinen
01:02:07
It's funny, though, I wore meticulous makeup for many years, but now at 44 and with the wisdom of my age and my "geriatric" motherhood (gave birth at 40), I wear some mascara and colored lip gloss. I am ok with me. I could have been a younger parent, but I would not be the same mom that I am now.
Maren Singer
01:02:08
yes- cynical now- I blame my age
Cheryl Wolkens
01:02:17
no yet, but I do say I have denentia from association
cathleen goray
01:02:24
When I was (much) younger the show "30 something" was on. I remember thinking of the characters...they are all SO old. I had a horrible time turning 30. Not so much turning4o...or 50!!
Jacqueline Stanford-Fenner
01:02:24
I call myself and my kids call me as well a "grandma driver"
Maren Singer
01:02:40
Cheryl W - I also say dementia is "contagious"
Jalana Jackson Miller-Dorsey
01:02:47
lol Cheryl
Jennifer Rassi
01:03:15
I agree Charles
Brenda Shafer-Pellinen
01:03:28
It is sad in that it is a great loss and missed opportunity when we devalue older adults.
Johanna Applegate
01:03:29
I hear a lot of ageism right now about millennials
Teri Kennedy-Flynn
01:03:53
Agreed Johanna. We assume things about a whole generation.
Maren Singer
01:03:58
I love person-first language- the more you use it, the more you are viewing the PERSON FIRST, and others around you will hopefully start using it more to
Maren Singer
01:04:00
too*
Bernadette Baer
01:04:25
Dementia is not just a condition for those who are in the upper digits of life, people as young as 25 have the condition
sarah leslie
01:04:47
The older generation is SOO amazing! lived through so much! so many stories to tell.
Teri Kennedy-Flynn
01:04:54
I am terrified that I might catch it and give it to the residents at my location-because it would be fatal if that were to happen
Maren Singer
01:05:05
I do have to say my mom is appreciative of senior hours
Bernadette Baer
01:05:33
People forget that someone can be 80 and be in better shape than some 20 year olds
Stephen Klotz
01:05:40
To the 4 questions: Yes, yes, yes, and not so much.
Marty Doring
01:06:03
our society is in a balance point time, at one end is people who want and NEED to work longer, and on the other is the world of work that slides people out of the work world when they are beyond 60. Funny, to have this happen when social security does not fully kick in until 66... 67... and is moving toward 70...
Alicia Gonzales
01:06:05
ditto happy early birthday Sara!
Sara Price
01:06:43
Thank you Alicia!
Angelina Becerra
01:07:43
I am terrified, because what if I catch it and I pass it on to my residents, coworkers or my family.
Maren Singer
01:09:19
WHO IS A GOOD BOY <3
Maren Singer
01:10:09
(Penny's dog, NOT the person on the screen)
Alicia Gonzales
01:16:15
ditto it’s a huge pet peeve of mine as well.
Tina Redcliff
01:16:38
I think being called mame is worse
Sara Price
01:17:14
Can't stand to hear people talk "baby talk" to the older generation...it's the worst!
Nancy Lowney
01:18:16
I told my staff that by the end of this, you will be the most creative people, more then you even thought you could be! :)
Maren Singer
01:18:31
Nancy- that is awesome!
Maren Singer
01:18:36
and so true!
Ashley Radano
01:18:40
We have taken advantage of COVID-19 regulations to really boost our one-to-one programs. Our staff have really focused on individuals.
cathleen goray
01:19:41
I can't wait for Ohio weather to get nice, my residents LOVE to be out in the court yard & everyone needs to get out!!
Sherri Bianco
01:21:49
I agree!
Jacqueline Stanford-Fenner
01:22:12
Ashley it has allowed me to work on our 1:1's as well!
Alicia Gonzales
01:22:43
I love that we have been doing more 1:1. several residents have stated how special they feel that they are being visited daily by staff. In AZ it’s warming up we have doing individual walks in the garden.
