How McDonald's is serving the elderly more than just burgers and fries
McDonald’s restaurant is a place of solace and socializing for many elderly people, according to a New York Times piece written by Stacy Torres. For older patrons who don’t have much structure in their lives, public places, like McDonald’s, help them everyday, Torres wrote.
“Like the teenagers who linger over sticky tabletops at Burger King and McDonald’s, these older people have reached a time when their lives do not revolve around work and family,” Torres wrote. “In the absence of those, these public places can anchor routines and provide a sense of structure and belonging.”
