The average pulse rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. But a well conditioned athlete's pulse can be between 40 and 60. It depends how fit your older person is and whether there is anything else worrying you about this person. Mine is below 60 and I'm no athlete, just active and a walker with a dog.
