Reframing Aging in Vermont

Most people, without even thinking of it, use common language to describe aging as a negative experience. Unfortunately, this language contributes to "ageism" in our culture, which is a stereotyping or discrimination of a person or group of people because of their age. This is a serious challenge in our culture and communities, manifesting in the unconscious thoughts we have, the actions we take, and in the social policies and systems we create.

Visit the Department of Aging, Disabilities, and Independent Living website to learn more about what Vermont is doing to begin the journey of "Reframing Aging" in Vermont.
