Older adults tend to be happier than younger adults, and the vast majority of them live independently– so why do many still see old age as a time of decline and unhappiness?

Ashton Applewhite takes on these misconceptions in This Chair Rocks, an engaging talk that challenges ageism and demonstrates that old age can be a time of creativity, laughter and happiness. This perspective is important for everyone– whether you work with older adults or simply plan on becoming old yourself.
