Who said growing old wasn't any fun? You might not be as fast as nimble as in your youth, but that is no reason not to get out and about, and have some fun.
It is often the case that older people find themselves isolated, lonely, and with no one to talk to, but that doesn't have to be the case. Age UK does everything they can to make sure seniors stay fit and healthy in mind, body, and spirit. The Merton branch have daily social activities at 277 London road, and organise regular outings for anyone over fifty. So don't stay cooped up at home; get out there and have a good time. Don't worry if you have difficulty getting out of the house, as a minibus service can come to pick you up.
