The group labelled ‘older people’ has attracted various definitions, opinions and perspectives across the globe (Victor 2010). The main reason for this is the way different cultures view ageing and the ageing process. The predominant opinion is that being ‘old’ is a biological and social context; for example, a calendar age is used to mark ageing, linking ‘old’ to biological ageing. There are also commonly held markers of old age, for example retirement age, state pension age or becoming a grandparent.
