HOW DO WE DEFINE THE TERM “ELDERLY”? MORE IMPORTANTLY, SHOULD THE WORD EXIST?

THERE IS A MARKED VARIABILITY IN THOSE THAT ARE ASSIGNED THIS WORD.  SOME 80 YR OLDS LOOK AND ACT 60 WITH BARELY A DISEASE, AND SOME 60 YR OLDS CAN BARELY WALK TO THEIR BATHROOMS! GIVEN THIS DIFFERENCE IN HEALTH AND PHYSICAL FUNCTION, WOULD IT THE BE MORE IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THE EXTENT OF SOMEONE’S CONDITION RATHER THAN THEIR BIRTHDATE? FOR MORE INFO, CHECK OUT “THE UNDER TREATMENT OF THE  OVER-THE -HILL” SHOW ON YOUR SHU! (SPECIAL SHOW: MY CO-HOST IS MY FATHER, DR. RONALD EISENBERG)

    Hey Dr. Scott – I wanted to listen to the recording of this show on this rainy Sunday, but I can’t seem to locate the podcast. Can you let me know how to get to it. Thanks.

  2. The show was Jan 10, 2011. On the searchbar upper right corner just type in “under treatment”, it comes right up. Thanks for listening!
