“Old Age” is really a social category that is defined differently by various cultures.

  • Age 60 – eligibility for Older Americans Act services

2. What are the physical or mental indications that tell you that you are old?

  • Hard of Hearing?

  • Waning Vision?

  • Aches and Arthritis/Rheumatism setting in?

Statistics: Typically, the beginnings of change in the five senses are as follows

  • Hearing – the mid 40’s

  • Vision – the mid 50’s

  • Touch – the mid 50’s
