Adults yearn for return to past values

Many over 50s are hankering for a return to past values, according to a new study.

Many over 50s in Britain believe the country has changed for the worse in recent years and want to see a return to past values.

This is the conclusion of a study by Chelsea Building Society, which found that most adults find that individual greed, family breakdown and the lack of discipline in schools has got worse over the last two decades.

Meanwhile, the majority of respondents said they place great importance on having basic manners, in particular acts such as vacating seats for elderly or pregnant people.

Tim Taylor, divisional director of customer services at Chelsea Building Society, commented: "It is good to see that some things never go out of fashion - manners don't cost anything but mean so much to people."

He added that people of all ages are looking to traditional values to provide "continuity in this uncertain world".

Despite their perception of declining standards, research from Prudential has found that older people are feeling physically healthy, with many eating a healthy balanced diet and getting plenty of exercise.
