eugeria

eugeria

The state of a high quality of life in old age. Eugeria should be the normal condition of old people, but is often precluded by physical illness or injury, psychological deficit or disturbance, and respect for defective cultural stereotypes. The term is derived from the Greek eus - good, and geras old age.
