READERS DISCUSS: what they fear most about ageing

AGEING can be scary. Some lose their hair. Some lose their teeth. There are the wrinkles. The grey hairs.

And then there are the unfortunate who lose so much mobility, they can no longer live at home. Or those that get Alzheimer's or dementia.

The Bulletin asked readers what they feared most about getting old. Here are some responses:
