Please help with my dumb question

I found a Latin phrase that I am contemplating getting a tattoo of and I just wanted to make sure that the meaning is what I think it is.. any help you can provide would be great.

The Latin phrase is this:
“morte magis metuenda senectus”

And as I’m informed it’s supposed to mean that “Old age is more fearful than death”

Any thoughts on refinement of the phrase would be great thanks.
