Promoting fitter ageing across generations and equity of access to better health

About Melrose

Dr Melrose Stewart MBE is a health and well-being enthusiast with a specific focus on the challenges of ageing. She received an MBE in 2020 for services to physiotherapy. As one of the experts on the multi award-winning Channel 4 TV documentary “Old Peoples’ home for 4 Year Olds”, she sees the adoption of intergenerational activities as an effective and enjoyable way of overcoming some of the mental and physical problems associated with it.

Melrose believes that, given that we all age, it is not something to be feared, denied or covered up, especially when pressures from friends, family, media and society are pushing us to think otherwise.  Her mission is also to counteract the negative stereotypes and rhetoric surrounding getting old.

In addition, Melrose sees the fight for equity and justice as a fundamental part of her activities. She was founder member of the BAME Network of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is a current member of Her Majesty’s Judiciary s in Employment and Disability Appeals and Personal Independent Payment Tribunals.
