The House of the Old is a location featured in The Giver.


As the name implies, the House of the Old is where older residents of the Community live. It is never said at what age a citizen is considered "old".

The Old are among the most respected members of the Community. They are well cared for and live lives of leisure.


While the exact age of Release is never given, all citizens know that they will eventually be Released at the end of their time in the House of the Old. Each Release is celebrated individually in the House of the Old, as a celebration of a life well lived.
