Think differently about ageing

How we are all missing out

You think you know what it means to be old. But older people care about the same things that you do.

Part of Action for Elder’s work is to help people understand just how much older people have to give to us all. Right now, we’re losing out by leaving older people out.

There are many things we can do, but first, we can listen. Listen to what the older people we have interviewed have to say about how they feel and what they would like to see by watching their stories below.

Think Differently about Ageing is a campaign to change how UK society and older people themselves look at ageing.


Joyce wants the world to realise that old age can be a wonderful and rewarding time of life.


We know as much as you know.


Everyone thinks getting older is doom and gloom, but there is so much to look forward to if only we think differently about ageing.


I’ve made more friends now than ever before, if people think differently about ageing and realise that it’s not a lonely time, we might look forward to ageing.


It’s time for the acceptance of older people. It’s time people think differently about ageing.


Tina wants young and old people to join forces to change the world and make it a better place for all. If younger people think differently about ageing there is so much we can achieve.
