**In your own words** answer following questions:

1. In what specific ways have family, society, & culture shaped your perceptions about aging and the elderly (for better or worse)?

2. How do myths about aging affect the way our society views (and treats) the elderly?

Note*: There are many myths and misconceptions in society as it relates to aging & the elderly – which can lead to damaging stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. The better we’re able to separate fact from fiction, the less likely we are to adopt such false beliefs.
