Getting old is inevitable and I don’t just mean that the next ‘big birthday’ for me is the ‘big four oh’! I mean becoming less independent, becoming elderly, becoming physically or mentally less able… or perhaps just being alone.
I’m relieved to know that my Grandma has a number of children and grandchildren worrying about her, caring for her and keeping in touch. But what happens to people like me? People without kids to take care of them in their old age.
I don’t think I’d be great at looking after people, in fact I know I’m not! Today I supported Age UK by buying tickets for their Spring Raffle http://www.ageuk.org.uk/get-involved/sell-raffle-tickets/
