40 is the new 30! 50 is the new 40! 60 is the new 50 and 70 is the new 60!
What has inspired me to write this article is the number of people we get calling our office daily, who are not ready to retire, and want to make a difference in their local community and say "Am I too old". When I was a Registered Manager my oldest Care Assistant was 75!
Our message is you are "ABSOLUTELY NOT TOO OLD - YOU ARE PERFECT! "
