    Welcome to our Ageing Well Centre

    Our perception of what old age looks like is changing dramatically. Women can now give birth in their 40s and 50s and octogenarians are running marathons and salsa dancing, then sharing these experiences on social media. But do we prepare ourselves for old age physically and mentally in the same way that we prepare financially?

    Our recent study found that only 14% of those surveyed felt comfortable talking about topics such as death, debt or illness with their partner. Nicky McGurk, 46 from Essex, who has been married for 15 years, says, “My husband and I both worry about our futures, but neither of us feels comfortable talking about it.”

    Chris Horlick, Director of AXA, “In an ageing society it is important for us to be open with loved ones. AXA is well-placed to make these taboos a thing of the past.”

    Our nurses understand the common concerns affecting people as they grow older. They are available 24/7 to provide guidance and support for you and your family. If you have a question that you would like an answer to then ask our team of medical experts.
