Senescence: the organic process of growing older and showing the effects of increasing age [syn: aging, ageing]

Can you use senescence in a sentence? I can't think of a non-technical one I would use it in, and I couldn't find it on Google used in the average sentence. "Senescence is the biological term for the decline associated with age."

"The outer man experiences senescence, but the inner man is renewed day by day."

Or, "senescence is depressing."

God bless

"Meanwhile, Russia is dying, Europe is fading into senescence, and the developing world is growing old before it grows prosperous. "
