Ageing is a natural process. In the words of seneca old age is an incurable disease. Anon says that science makes them live longer yet our civilization finds less use for them. Persons of 65 years of age older are typically referred to as elderly. It is said that nobody grows old merely by living a certain number of years. Years wrinkle the skin, but worry, doubt, fear, anxiety and self distrust wrinkle the soul. While ageing merely stands for growing old, senescence is an expression used for the deterioration of the biologic efficiency that accompanies ageing. These changes are for the most part deleterious and eventually lead to the death of the organism.
