Taiwanese now believe old age starts at 70

A survey of 3,359 adults shows that now Taiwanese people think old age begins at 70 instead of 60.

The survey also indicates that in general, 10.2% show signs of depression and need  professional help.  Among those 61 – 70 years old, 6.4% show obvious depression, and among those 71-80 years old, 12.4% show obvious depression because their ability to cope with ordinary requirements of living independently have lessened.

Young people worry about work, their financial situation and their future life, but old people worry about their health.
