Ageing

I was listening to Jane Barrett speaking about Ageing… she made the point that ageing starts a birth.   It made me think that there is a group of people that have a mind-set that there are two kinds of ageing:

  • Good Ageing – getting to a productive life
  • Bad Ageing – costly retirement

Well clearly this attitude is wrong and Jane Barrett is right. My view is that we need to turn Ageing into a campaign like American Civil Rights… the treatment of older people in this Country is scandalous.  Perhaps with a large chunk of the population turning 65 this year now is a good time to start.
