KEYLIFT FORKLIFT TRUCK TRAINING Professional Fork Lift Truck Training

Pensioner’s Wisdom

Keylift Forklift Truck Training loves pensioner’s wisdom!

The forklift truck training team at Keylift saw an article about a new scheme to get pensioners helping the youth of today.  Research has found that about 91% of British pensioners believe they could answer questions younger people struggle with.

More than 3 quarters of people say Britain would be in a better state if older people were listened to more often.  From research it was found that large quantities of youngsters do not have contact with anyone over 65 years old.  The older generation are keen to pass on tips to youngsters who may be going through what they have experienced when young.

The charity who is responsible for the scheme worked with dozens of pensioners across the UK to compile a list of useful tips on how to deal with life’s problems from losing a loved one to having a happy marriage.  After all they have been through it all and come out the other end.  Surely they would be able to teach us a thing or two.

It looks like a good idea with both the elderly and the young getting something from this experience.

This will boost the confidence of many over 65’s who believe that people are less likely to listen or respect their opinions at their age.

Although this does not seem to be the case, many youngsters would welcome the advice from someone older.  They have knowledge on difficult life situations such as managing money through difficult times.  I think we can all relate to this.  The elderly are recognised as being some of the happiest in the country which is something we could all learn from.

It’s all free and given with a good heart, which sounds good to us.

There is a saying, ‘you can’t put an old head on young shoulders’ which is certainly true.

But this is a start!
