In Tennessee, the HCP would actually be better ID for an older person. A seniors' DL is not required to have a picture, but the HCP has one regardless of age.
On another note, my cousin is a pharmacist here in TN. He says they must accept any government issued ID, but only ask for identification on Schedule drugs and the drugs must be signed for.

My permit doesn't have a picture yet...it will when I renew though. So mine would not be a legal form of ID, but then again, it's not illegal for me to show anyone, accidentally or on purpose.

State issued ID/ International DL ??
It is true in Texas too. My mother, who never had a DL in her life, got a Texas ID at the age of 86. The only photo ID she had was either a library card or a bus pass; I can't recall which. She had no passport, and I'm not even sure if we had a birth certificate for her. To my amazement, and thankfully because she needed the ID to get on a plane, they did nothing more than ask if I could vouch for her identity and I think they then recorded my DL for proof of who she was.

For the same reason, I don't like this business of requiring ID to get on a plane.
Has anyone ever tried to use an International Driver's License for ID?
This is an interesting document. It is issued by AAA, somehow on the basis of an international convention which almost all countries have signed on to.
You need a Passport to get it, and it has your photo on it along with your Passport number. Of course, it is not directly a US government issued ID; but it comes dang close.

It is trivial for virtually every American, young or old, to get valid identification. It is far more difficult for illegals to gain access to valid identification, which is why it is imperative we implement RealID. RealID is literally tamperproof and virtually impossible to forge.
