DID YOU KNOW?
In all the top surveys we know of, the preferred terms to describe those over 50 include: older persons, older people, older adults, aging adults, elders, persons 65 years and older, or the older population. Third age or third act and perennials, as a play on “millennials,” are sometimes used by people in the field but these newer terms haven't readily caught on yet.
The word "senior," most especially when used with "citizen" is disliked by a majority of survey respondents. Other less desirable phrases include "positive aging" and successful aging."
The problem is there is a great deal of difference between a 50-year-old and a veteran adult in his or her 80s or 90s. One name may not fit such a large group. And the Shepherd's Centers network covers this full age range with a variety of opportunities.
