At what age are you dispensed from attending Mass?

At what age are you dispensed from attending Mass? My husband is 68 and in fairly good health, but sometimes he wants to miss Mass and stay home or watch it on TV.

There is no age at which Catholics are granted an automatic dispensation from their Sunday/holy day obligation. One can miss Mass for just cause, which would include an inability to go to Mass due to fragile health, but just wanting to sit at home is not “just cause.” And watching Mass on TV does not fulfill the obligation.
