    Here's a case where context is everything. There's no way to answer you correctly in a vacuum. What else can you tell us?

    When we talk about older women and older men are we talking about anziani or adulti? :D
    i think that that depend on what you want to say. -er suffix implies the relativity of that adjective

    maturo/a works, anziano/a could offend some people;
    older is a relative term: my husband is older than me by 1 year..
    ..I call him " old man!":D
