UK charity's PSA offers no cure for aging

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Mar 19, 2014

British charity Age UK wants to inform you with their latest televised PSA that aging is not a disease and there is no cure, so embrace it.

"There is no cure for aging, because aging isn't an illness but a way of life," states a commercial for their "Love Later Life" campaign. "The secret? Think yourself younger than you really are."

Age UK "believe[s] in a world where everyone can love later life. Age UK is here to inspire, enable and support older people to help people make the most of later life," notes their organization's web site.

"Two of the videos, narrated by veteran actors Sir Christopher Lee and Jonathan Pryce, show the progression from childhood to old age with a touching poem written by famed poet Roger McGough," reports the Huffington Post. It includes the line, "You are old but valued still."
