    Elderly???? Gosh I hope no one refers to me as elderly when I'm 61....

    "Is 61 considered elderly?"

    Not to me either, but to many it is. Just ask a 25 year old...

    It is sad that people do not care for their elderly, I have seen to many old people living lonely, a phone call is not enough....old people needs physical interaction!!!!
