Working longer is not the only way to stay fit
Professor Sally Davies made the comments ahead of a new report into the health of the "baby boomer" generation. Claire Henry, CEO of Dying Matters, said in response "Staying active to stay healthy in older age doesn't have to mean working longer for everyone. There is great need for experienced people to give time as volunteers in their community, and plenty of opportunities to help. This includes helping and supporting people who are going though dying, death and bereavement. They need a lot of practical support, as well as companionship, time and friendship. Asking someone who needs a hand whether you can help is a great way to start."
