With people living longer these days, seniors can be ages 55 - 95 and older! That's a range of 40 years!!! Baby Boomers (1945-1965) are the largest segment of this population and will still be turning 65 through the year 2030! Each generation represents different challenges, perceptions and realities, and may handle family, finances, business dealings and personal relationships in a variety of different ways ... what makes sense to one, may not make sense to another.
Rapid changes in technology have also played a hand in this. Older seniors may or may not use or even have a computer, which may limit their ability to communicate effectively and can lead to social isolation. "Younger" seniors may be more savvy about technology because many are still in the work force.
