Old age worker
There is talk at the moment in Australia to lift retirement age to 70 so access to both age pension and superannuation would be denied until one turn 70 (for now)

If that to happen, what sorts of improvement to work place needed to accommodate old age workers oldman
Any ideas .... put your thinking cap on

Here are some ideas: Provision of tea, coffee, metamucil, prune juice cooler, ....
Recliners, denture cups, nap rooms, hand rails to toilets, walking frames, ...

….coin-operated hearing aid battery dispensers in the nap rooms and extra reading glasses in every desk.

Cool RE: Old age worker
Ya know one day you will be there as I am (65), and you'll be lucky if you are in as good health as I am.

65 is the new 50.


I do cardio 4 x's a week for an hour, I will have to work until 70 but I don't need any of your old age aides and I still make over 6 figures.

No need for a nap, prunes etc.

Hope you all age as well
