    experience if they are healthy. Quite a sweeping statement
    "so oten there is a change...in the last two yrs of life".

        I'm only in my 40s but what Ive noticed some ageist behavior on DK so have decided to point it out, point out generalizations.

        It took me to me current age to start understanding what elders have that younger people do not. Though I always got along with older people.
