The Joy Club: What are people missing out on when they make assumptions based on age?

Linda: A whole lot of fun! Just because you’re retired doesn’t mean you want to hide away.

There is also often a feeling of being invisible, being ignored when you’re trying to buy a pint in the pub or not catching the waiter’s eye, or just ‘not being remembered’ by someone to whom you’ve been previously introduced.

Member testimonial

“We are very lucky to have found The Joy Club. I am sitting here now looking at the offerings and am really looking forward to it. It shaped my week and my mind and makes me feel positive about retired life.

My friendship group are all younger than me and so headed back to work in January. I couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief that it wasn’t me and all I had to think about were plans for lovely things to do.”  (Theresa, member)
