Buzz words terminology

formal (the hired help) and informal care

the young old (65 to 74), old old (75 to 84), and the oldest old (>85)

55 is middle-aged and often called the in-between generation of caregivers

(a friend, who needed to use a form of Retin-A for adult acne and Night of Olay cream for dry skin, once said “middle-age is when your wrinkle cream conflicts with your acne medicine”)
