In America old age is laughed at ,”look at the old geezer or old hag, Its almost as if we think of the elderly as a separate species. We make fun of toothless people, I was at a swimming pool when a group of senor citizens were going in the pool ,as they all got in the pool my someone at poolside yelled out”look cocoon” as in the movie of the same name reminiscent of the pool Scene when the old people went into the pool to rejuvenate to become young and healthy again.
While in Japan Old age is Revered and respected, something to look up to . yes there is senor discounts and housing at a good price , but that’s by the governments not by by the individuals. I remember my grandmother saying when she was 78 yrs old ” I look in the mirror and see an old lady that’s not me”Well we will all grow old . we will get there someday if were lucky.
