What are the negative effects of ageism?
Older people won’t speak up in other parts of their lives because they presume that their voice and opinion won’t matter to anybody, even their own family. Based on a study, age discrimination in older people’s workplaces would cause depression and life dissatisfaction. My grandfather was a cool and active person before forcing him to resign because he had an “old-fashioned strategy.” After he quit, he was suddenly quiet and a bit depressed, displaying it with dark humor and silence in everyday family discussions. Ageism will have a profound impact on seniors’ mental health.
