You want to use the INTCK and INTNX functions, Read the article and modify the technique in the article 'INTCK and INTNX: Two essential functions for computing intervals between dates in SAS," which gives ages in the form Y YEARS and D DAYS. The article links to the documentation for those functions and a few SAS Global Forum papers that are worth reading.

I tested the following on a number of dates and it appears to meet all posibilities:
format date date9.; input date date9.; years=intck('year',date,today(),'C'); months=intck('month',date,today(),'C')-(years*12); if day(date) le day(today()) then days=day(today())-day(date); else days=intck('day',mdy(month(intnx('month',today(),-1,'same')), day(date), year(intnx('month',today(),-1,'same'))), today(),'C'); datediff=catx(' ',years,'years,',months,'months, and',days,'days'); cards; 17may1991 29jun2016 28jun2016 27jun2016 26jun2016 25jun2016 29may2016 28may2016 27may2016 26may2016 25may2016 ; run;

Nice. Looks pretty good, Art!
Just to be clear, we are all assuming that the DATE represents some event in the past, which seems to be the case for this question.
