Thank you Kirk,
Oh my god...!
By the way, I hear that the word "a senior citizen" is gaining increased attention nowadays instead of saying 'the elderly'. e.g. "The senior citizens are valued in our society." Does this sound okay? :)

Hello Rafaela1,

Yes, 'senior citizen' is a common term nowadays which is seen as more respectful that 'the elderly'.

You don't need the definite article in your sentence as you are talking about senior citizens in general, not a particular group of them:

Senior citizens are valued in our society.
