Honey, Margaret, & Carol

Honey is a woman I met at an Assisted Living home I visit.  I don't know how old she is.  Workers sometimes will prompt me to ask a resident how old he or she is, because the resident will sometimes answer like he or she is young.  "Oh, I'm 32," or something like that.  However, the echo of the chidings during my youth are loud, and so I still feel like it's very rude and improper to ask someone how old he or she is--regardless of someone being senial.  Am I right?
