Getting Older – How young people see seniors

WE ASKED: WHAT AGE IS ‘OLD’?  Answer : 59

Female respondents chose 61 as ‘old,’ whereas those identified as male went with 56.


#1 “People’s driving skills decline as they age.”

#2“ As people age, they become lonelier.”

#3“ People like their bodies less when they get old.”

#4“ As people get older, their physical health and general mobility decline.”

#5 “When people get older, they lose touch with modern technology.”

#6 “After the age of 60, people’s sex lives generally decline.”

4 Caring less about what others think of you
5 Spending time with grandchildren
