I don't know. Does mental acuity age at the same rate as the body? What I wonder is. . . just because we are living longer, does it mean that we are able to work the same way at age 75 as we are at age 55 or even 65? Our bodies may be held together with pharmaceuticals and/or general better health, but how do our minds hold up? Are we as lucid? Do we maintain the same critical thinking skills? Are there any studies on this?
I'm just thinking of people I know--neighbors, parents, in-laws, and others--who are past age 65. I'm trying to imagine them working full-time. My parents, who are just at the 75 age mark are having cataract surgery, knee replacement surgery, and all sorts of medical work done--and they are in very good shape when compared to others in their age bracket. I can't imagine them still working full-time. . . They also seem less flexible with new ideas, etc.
