People - elderly
27 images Created 13 May 2009
Old age consists of ages nearing or surpassing the average life span of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms and terms for old people include seniors -- chiefly an American usage -- or elderly. As occurs with almost any definable group of humanity, some people will hold a prejudice against others -- in this case, against old people. This is one form of ageism.
