In brief: Age greater than 70

Generally persons over the age of 70 years are disqualified from receiving a kidney transplant.

In brief: Here are some ...

Just call and ask local centers for kidney transplantation for specific help and information timely.
As to age restriction, it's quite flexible in considering biological age, not chronological age alone. However, as realistic financial resource inevitably diminishes, more age scrutiny will become tighter. Known to most if not all, this is reality and nothing is free but comes with a price.
