Top 10 Films with Heroes Who are Over 60 Years Old

 

It happens to all of us. It’s as certain as taxes and the tacky antics of reality television ‘stars.’  We will all die one day. Now flashback as far as you can…five years, a decade, two or more and see how much has changed. Do you like the same music? Do you support the same political party? Are you with someone you love, or have you lost your ability to simply feel said emotion. Time takes its toll, and in the end, what we don’t learn from its passage predicts our inability to deal with what’s ahead. Here is the list of top 10 films about Old People:

Cameron hopes to tackle dementia

 

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt stated that a cure for dementia could be found within 12 year. He also urged that leading nations needed to increase the amount of cash spent fighting the disease in a bid to defeat it for good and would like a cure to be available by 2025.David Cameron promises to tackle dementia

The striking announcement came at the end of a global summit on dementia organised by David Cameron in his role chairing the G8 club of the world’s richest nations.

The PM claimed today was the day ‘the global fightback really started’. He said in the summit that this is disease steals lives, wrecks families and breaks hearts.If we are to beat dementia, we must also work globally, with nations, business and scientists from all over the world working together as we did with cancer, and with HIV and Aids. This is going to be a bigger and bigger issue, the key is to keep pushing.

In the NHS, the aim is to ensure that diagnosis rates rise from below half to more than two-thirds. Mr Hunt likened dementia to how cancer used to be. He said cancer funding for research only started pouring in once we stopped sweeping it under the carpet.

London has became the first dementia-friendly city in the world with initiatives such as training bus drivers to spot the signs of dementia and making historic royal palaces more accessible to what is estimated to be around 70,000 people living with dementia in the capital.

There was a launch of Pan-London Dementia Action Alliance at City Hall and is made up of a collection of organisations, businesses and people committed to improving the lives of people with dementia in London including the Metropolitan Police, the London Fire Brigade, the London Ambulance Service, London Councils, the Royal Academy of Arts, Transport of London, Historic Royal Palaces and Alzheimer’s society.

The founding of Pan-London Dementia Action Alliance aims to address the isolation that many people living with dementia can feel and we are delighted to see so many of London’s greatest attractions and services committing to helping Londoners live well with dementia.
