This presentation discusses Phase Two of a completed doctoral study investigating agelessness, and agelessness links to lifelong learning and social wellbeing. The focus groups rejected the view that in perceptions of age, what you see is what you get, and extended, refined and endorsed descriptors of agelessness, as well as asserting that learning choices are made related to experiences of life. The effect on agelessness of critical life moments such as epiphanies or turning points moments posited by Denzin (2001), were also discussed.
