Cheer up, boomers!
â€œWe all say it to each other: 'When I get to that stage, for pityâ€™s sake, collect up the pills, mash them up with some jam and Iâ€™ll go off on cloud nine.' Everyone says that, because nobody wants to be stuck in a home, drooling, unvisited and unwanted and unloved. So maybe if old peopleâ€™s homes were better, fewer people would think, 'God what a bloody old age Iâ€™ve got come ahead: lonely, frightened, ill, hating it all.'"
