"WMA Declaration on Discrimination against Elderly Individuals within Healthcare Settings"

World Medical Association

Older people are perceived as recipients of help, care and financial support, which is inaccurate, as they make significant contributions to the well-being of their environment, which has a high social value.

Biological age should never be used as a basis for discrimination, although it can be a relevant factor in medical decision-making. Reference to age can therefore be professionally sound.
