Examples of ELDERLY in a Sentence

  1. Lu Jiehua:

    The popularity of new digital tools has a great impact on the life of the elderly.

  2. Donna Johnson:

    So many people were not informed of what to do in a drought like this. I thought there are people who don't speak English, people that are elderly, they're pregnant, have diabetes, that are ill, everyday people. It doesn't have any prejudice. It affects everybody from the low-income to the higher-income person.

  3. Natalie Smith:

    You hear your mother is OK, but my mother is an elderly woman, and you don’t know how they take these things, unfortunately, at the time, she was home alone. I had to rush here and see what was going on.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    During my childhood, we were taught by our parents to treat all elderly women as mothers, and younger women as sisters. We were taught to believe that women, just like men, are created in the image of God, and must be treated with love, dignity and respect. These life's lessons from my childhood still remain close to my heart, regardless of time, place or society that I live in. I do hope that we'll continue to teach the same precious lessons to our children, so that they'll also treat every woman with love, dignity and respect - as their own mother or sister or daughter, as a divine image of God, and not as an object of desire to be ogled and fantasized about. In my view, real men always treat women with Equality and Respect they rightfully deserve.

  5. Jaclyn Rothenberg:

    As the woman waving to a reporter (who I know) who wrote the story on a plane filled with other media, this isnt true. The mayor sat in row 13 and got off the plane in order. Its true that security in the last row got off first along with elderly and handicapped.
