Stereotypes, prejudices or discrimination against a person because of their age are a widespread phenomenon and pose a threat to the well-being of older adults.

Ageism refers to a negative view of aging and the elderly.

Older adults are at risk of internalizing negative stereotypes and prejudices, and showing ageism towards themselves and others.
