Life span of a David Austen rose bush?

My Abraham Darby was a lovely productive thing when I bought it about 7 years ago, but has gradually declined. It has black spot, and only spindly growth at this point. I've fed it with organic fertilizer (Flower Tone), fed it compost and planted beneficials at its feet. It's been watered with a soaker hose. Nothing seems to perk it up - is just old? Thanks, MsB
