Abstract

In this paper, the practitioner-researchers talk about how one can be treated ethically, and how one ages positively in a caring society; they are asking questions or raising issues to find out more on an important subject for bioethics and sociology regarding ageism and the associated ethical implications. The methodology employed is the case study approach in which it can promote discussions, allowing the students or decision makers to see things from different perspectives, broadening their minds as well as applying it as a tool for studying decisional behavior and human resource management or more specifically, hiring and firing.

 

Keywords: Ageism, age discrimination, ethics, positive ageing, case study.
