Successful Aging: When it comes to Older Americans Month, how old is old?

Even if an older adult doesn’t feel old, they still have the right to focus on their health and celebrate their past accomplishments during Older Americans Month. A study found that, after 50, most people feel 10 years younger than they are. Pew Research surveyed 3,000 adults-- Among those 65 to 74, one-third said they felt 10 to 19 years younger, and one-sixth of those 75 and older said they felt 20 years younger. The majority of older adults remain vigorous, engaged with activities and satisfied with their role in society.
