The law contains few norms directed explicitly at those older than 65 or that take that age as a threshold. This applies to laws on nursing homes and guardianship laws, even though both of these legal domains attest to the fact that law has started to account for old age in the second half of the 20th century. This study traces this inclusion of old age in law since the 1960s.
