Think of an elderly person (aged 65 or older) whom you know and describe this person’s status on each of these five ages. What factors do you think have led to this person’s current status?
Think of two elderly people (aged 65 or older) and compare their status on at least two of the above types of age other than chronological. (You may use chronological age for providing context, but simply comparing two people on this dimension isn’t interesting, so that’s why you shouldn’t use it.) What factors do you think have led any similarities and differences?
In your assignment, be respectful of confidentiality and don’t provide any identifying information about the people you’re writing about. General details (e.g., “a 90-year-old neighbor”, “my grandfather”) are okay, but don’t provide specific names.
