In terms of the body shape, it can be observed that when a person reaches his/her senior stage his body shape become leaner and shorter; this is because of the muscles loss and thinning of the bone. Another physical change that a person undergoes when he/she becomes old is that wrinkles and age spots start to show up on his/her face.
