Research for Geriatric

Geriatric =
1. Of or pertaining to geriatrics, old age, or aged persons
2. Slang for old person

1. Of or relating to geriatric medicine or to older people
2. offensive (of people or machines) old, obsolescent, worn out or useless
3. Old fashioned
4. Informal - person regarding as senile or unable to look after his or her own best interests

These definitions came from freeonlinedictionary.com, I like the terms of no longer being able to perform proper functions

These are the image examples I gained in response to the word, depicting weak and fragile - loss of energy. I like the above image of the old playing on the Wii because it emphasises how a person can't accept their age and try to blend in by embracing the ways of youth society and technology when it is really too advanced from the background they came from.
