The modern form of shunning

How might we restore life to those in the nursing home? Do we see folks in nursing homes as dead men and women walking?

We need to assign blame in this to ourselves, and not to society in general: what do we do every day to counter this picture?

Do we speak of “senior moments” as code for memory lapses—or for playing with grandkids? Do we avoid visiting people in assisted living facilities—the modern form of shunning? Do we say “ouch” when someone says something negative about people who have a few years on us, but who are living? Do we find ways to foster their creativity?
