    Elder, older, eldest, oldest

    Elder and eldest mean the same as older and oldest. We only use the adjectives elder and eldest before a noun (as attributive adjectives), and usually when talking about relationships within a family.

    Let me introduce Jane. She's my elder sister.

    Older and oldest can be used to refer to the age.
