In brief: Similar for under 70

In general, the blood pressure ranges are not different for patients over 70, although in the past, some thought so due to "hardening' of the arteries.
Ideal BP - less than 120/80. "prehypertension" - less than 140/90. Patients with diabetes or other certain conditions may have slightly different goal ranges. I wish you well.
