About this resource:

Using data from the Elevate Aging Project, a partnership of the California Assisted Living Association and Elder Care Alliance, this language use and style guide identifies words and phrases that perpetuate ageist views and suggests replacements that promote positive views of aging. In addition, this guide covers the use of an inclusive, person-centered philosophy which should be kept in mind when writing about older adults.
