    What Are The Ways In Which Elderly People Become The Victims of "Unintentional Gaslighting"?

    There are several definitions of "gaslighting" (most people know what it is).  A brief one is essentially making someone else doubt himself and/or refusing to be/seem "on the same page as he" with regard to his perceived reality (which may well BE reality, not just "perceived"/"imagined").  Older people are at risk of intentional abuse, of course; but sometimes what might feel like "gaslighting" happens when people mean well but just don't understand all the things/stresses someone older has on his otherwise clear, capable, mind.  So, older people, what do others "not seem to understand"?

    The thing that annoys me the most is that people assume that you're brain was reformatted when you retired and is now blank.

    The "you're old, so you're obsolete" view.
    Or "you're old, your experience compared to today's tech makes your life experience of dealing with human nature useless".
