Elderly people are often made to feel like they’re worth less than their younger counterparts, and this can lead to major mental health problems.

In saying this, there are numerous strategies along with exercise, meditation, etc., you can use to maintain strong mental health in the face of discrimination. In the rest of this article, we’ve covered a few of these strategies, along with your main rights.
