54 per cent of middle-aged think later life's 'a time to be afraid'

Only 38 per cent of those surveyed between the ages of 40 and 60 thought it was 'a time to look forward to', according to the Pilgrims' Friend Society research.

The charity's director Alexandra Davis sets out the findings in an incisive piece in the Times newspaper on Saturday (August 26).

She advocates we all put a mid-life MOT on our 'to do' list. Thinking about what sort of older person we want to become, rather than just letting life happen, is up there with wise pension planning in her book.

Pilgrims' Friend Society supports older people to live well in later life through the provision of care homes and independent living schemes.
