To an Older Coworker: “There were some last-minute changes. Will that be too much to handle?”


People generally stereotype older health care workers as less adaptable and more resistant to change. They say that since older nurses have seen more initiatives fail in the workplace, they’re more likely to question change, but this isn’t necessarily true.

Older workers can adapt well to change as long as they understand the reasons for it, which, of course, can be said about any worker at any age. Don’t be condescending and question an older worker’s ability to be flexible. Age has very little to do with it.
