Our campaign film
Here at Macmillan we believe that age is just a number, not an excuse to treat older people differently. Watch our campaign film, featuring Patrick Stewart, showing why older people should be treated as individuals and take action.
What do we want?
We are calling for:
Older people to be offered treatment and care based on their fitness rather than their age
Services to be made accessible to meet the needs of older people
Staff to be given the time and training needed to provide the best possible care
But we can't do it alone. We need your support. Take our campaign pledge calling on health and social care providers to change the record.
