Don’t like being called Senior?

My 82 year old mother does not like being referred to as a “senior citizen”.
She doesn’t even like Senior.

So I ask this: If you are retired, or an older person…which term do you like best?

I found a site online with focus group results. (In an effort to find a good way to fill in the following blanks: What else works with______ Discount, ______ Living Guide,
and Free Stuff for _______?)

The focus group revealed these options.

Least Appealing
Older Boomers
Elders
OlderPeople
Third Agers
Third Actors
Retired People
Senior Citizens

Most Appealing
TheExperienced
Advisers
Coaches
Wise Ones
Masters
SeasonedCitizens

Others not on the list:
JALOs (for those “Just A Little Older.”)
Zoomers
Golden Girls
Mature

So….if you are a wise one, or a seasoned citizen……which term have you heard that you like best?
Just post a reply below.
:)
