Well said, AngelMay. Well said. But, even the world's greatest adventurer will be bitter and miserable if his old age is consumed with pain and limited mobility. In fact, I'd say that those knocked down from an active lifestyle probably suffer more. Memories are cold comfort when you have to grunt and groan just to get out of the chair to got to the potty.

Yes. And what you have said reminds me of another thing I should have included -- loss of dignity. It's hard for anyone to be treated in an undignified manner and it's especially hard for the elderly who have to submit to it whether they like it or not due simply to their physical limitations.
