Chesterfield Council on Aging

Thursday, May 28, 2020

The Chesterfield Council on Aging seeks to enhance the quality of life for older adults and adults with disabilities through education, advocacy and community service. Meetings include a speaker on topics relevant to older adults, as well as reports from Council committees and activities.

Aging into Elderhood

In this presentation, we will explore the phenomenon of ageism within all levels of society.  We will discuss how the cultural narrative of aging has declined and the institutionalization of retirement as a stage of life has shaped our expectations and experiences and understanding of Elderhood as a unique development in the life cycle. Together we will examine what we think we know about Elderhood, what we know about Elderhood and what we have yet to discover about the unique period in our life.  Presented by Dr. Tracey Gendron, Chair, VCU Department of Gerontology.
