    Being past middle age and approaching old age is what i would describe someone as elderly.Some elderly people have more "get up and go"than a lot of younger people.

    My get up and go has got up and went.

    Some places may say 55 and older, Elderly could be anyone older than you and deserve respect ! {:D

    Elderly is always 10 years older than your current age!

    I thought all you old Aussies were like that...lol..KOTF.

    Same as you define someone who can not spell "you" "elderly" or "situation"> Carefully you do not know what reaction you might get.

    I dont like the word "elderly" I prefer to call them "elders" I took a course in Gerontology many years ago and it explains the word "elderly" as beeing dependend, beeing exploited and prone to abuse. Youth is glorified in the US and many elders become invisible. That is so far removed from reality. Many people have started businesses, have accomplished great things in theire late 60s and 70s In Europe, elders are held in high esteem because of theire wisdom and knowledge. .

    Your old when you grunt or make a noise when you get up, your elderly when you also do that when sitting down................... I know GRUNT

    The age definition for elderly gets higher every year.

    OLD PEOPLE

    Planting more garden beds and still shootin' pool! Oh yeah baby!!!

    Anyone ten year older than you.

    I think a person is old when they start getting old age pension, between age of 60/65 yrs.

    Well to me The Elderly is a group of people  who  have attained a certain amount of wisdom, and accomplishments, made  contributions to society, raised their families the best the could, and should not be considered to be a burden on the New World Order of a Certain Politicial party, who thinks  they are a has been  used up  old fogies who should be  left to  get by the best they can or hurry up and die off  so we  won't have to pay any  Benifits to them.   Just my opinionI'm sure there are those who'd dispute that.
