  • I think that we should treat the elderly with kindness and consideration that we would show anyone else. You know these people have a lot to offer us and if we take the time to listen... we just might figure out where we will be in our old age. Treat them as though they have been on this planet long enough to know a thing or two. Ask them questions about their youth, about their children their life experiences in general. I have a few older friends and they probably are some of the coolest people I know. Do yourself a favor... when you ask a question... be sure to listen... it is almost like unwrapping a gift you never knew you wanted.
    Cherish the old... experiences don't change as much as the era's do... you will be surprised at how similar you might be to an older person!!!

  • Like everyone it's not because they're old they should get a special treatment. In my country elderly feel like they must have a special treatments and are rude, it's very annoying. Hopefully they aren't all like that.

  • I treat them with a slightly increased level of respect and care where their fragility seems obvious but other than that I treat them like any other people. They get as much respect as they give. I'm a polite person by default anyway so it's not like I was ever going to be knocking them over in the street.

  • Every time I see an older person, I see myself in them. They are to be treated with respect for having braved this harsh life, and revered, for one day, if we manage to live as long, we will be in their place. This culture worships the young, but it has it backwards...

  • more care, more affection , more understanding because you dont know what family they come from, some have it really rough so a little kindness always helps

  • i treat them with respect but it seems western governments are seeing them as a burden and as they cut funding in health sevrices and social care to look after them the mortality rates in america, britain and france to name just the main ones is reflecting this. the uk alone saved 310 billion dollars by letting the old die early just last year alone.

  • like any other human being, just because you're old does not mean you're special.

    I do treat others with respect.

  • With respect. And the same as people of any age - no different , if you treat them like they're old they might feel old. I'm no ageist :-) .
