social studies (elderly people)

How third age people live in America, Africa and Asia, which is the different roles they play in different societies. (I am 11 years old)

It's difficult to generalize about the roles of the elderly in such large continents. In general, Asian senior citizens tend to be honored and cared for by their families. In the U.S. few elderly people live with their families, but live independently or in assisted living facilities or nursing homes.
