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.
