    “I suppose it’s the physical changes that make me feel older – the things younger people take for granted I just can’t do anymore. I have trouble reading the paper; I find it really difficult to write, especially form filling.  My memory is dreadful and I am constantly forgetting where I have put things”

    “I receive so many patronising pieces of literature through the post, most of which I can’t read as the print is too small, and as for the pictures they use, clearly whoever designs them, has no idea how older people see themselves.  Don’t get me started on TV ads supposedly aimed at people like me – if only they could understand me better, life would be so much more pleasurable”.
