Tips on how to communicate with Seniors:

    1. Avoid stereotyping or reinforcing incorrect perceptions about seniors—show older people
    as you know them to be—active participants, using a full range of abilities in a full range of
    roles and activities.

    2. Remember that the way you use language reflects your attitudes and your respect for the
    audience.
