The Japan Gerontological Society proposed on Thursday to change the definition of elderly people, which is currently 65 or older, to 75 or older, as people are staying healthy longer these days.
Japanese people are becoming “younger,” as the decline of health due to aging has been delayed for some 5-10 years compared with the situation 10-20 years ago, the society, comprising seven groups including the Japan Geriatrics Society, pointed out in the proposal.
