Life on the Edge

What does this title mean?  It says what it means.  The elderly live on the edge of life. They are rarely considered and certainly not consulted. They exist on the outer rim of society. The lucky ones have families with younger people, when they can live vicariously, but they are still apart.  The ones who live alone have little idea the way life is lived by younger people. They are totally excluded. This is the way I see things as an older person. I believe many of the elderly feel the same. It is hard to lose one’s independance. It is hard to understand the way the world is now.
