ILLUMINATION

What is in a name?

85 years young, 85 years old

The type of language we use to describe “older” people tells us a lot about our attitudes to ageing.

There are many terms that were commonplace 10/20 years ago, which thankfully have been shuffled out of the way.

That still leaves us with what is acceptable.
