    The lead character, after experiencing age discrimination in her workplace and seeing how her mother is affected by ‘ElderSpeak’ at the health care facility, comes up with a plan. With the help of her Mom and other residents of Shadyview Meadows, they create a hilarious change of attitude for staff members. The play refers to ‘ElderSpeak,’ belittling forms of speech directed towards older people. Without thinking, many of us talk down to seniors, using and accepting ‘ElderSpeak.’ Here the topic is addressed with sensitivity and humor without finger pointing or judgment. Performances have been well received at retirement homes, senior centers, and conferences for health care professionals.
