When users search for icons using terms such as 'elderly' or 'older people' the vast majority of icons that appear are of people using walking sticks, hunched over or bald men.

At the Centre for Ageing Better, we created a set of icons that offer alternatives to these, which can be accessed here for inspiration: https://ageing-better.org.uk/news/range-free-use-age-positive-icons-launched-replace-stereotypical-symbols-ageing
