Understanding and Embracing Change
Facing change without fear is challenging, particularly for older people who may have been in the same role or company for a long time. However, retirement can be a time of golden opportunities.
Whatever route an individual chooses, the work-life balance alters, and life after work will look and feel very different. Sessions examine how to manage this change in a positive way.
Exploration of Opportunities
Some people are not ready to retire and use their exit from employment as a springboard for other things. The focus is on new horizons and the different options available.
Group and 1:1 sessions explore alternatives to employment and retirement like higher education, becoming self-employed, volunteering, starting a business or retraining for a new career.
Most people derive a lot, if not all, of their identity from their work. We explore emotional health and well-being during this significant life transition. Sessions also focus on family matters, including changing relationships, the home situation and relocation options.
Retirement can be a daunting time financially without the security of regular income. Our group sessions take a deep dive into pensions and financial planning, including making a will and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Individual meetings offer a more in-depth look at personal finances with the option to speak to an approved financial adviser.
Creating an Action Plan
Planning is all about taking control, and we advise people on crafting an action plan to suit their circumstances and requirements.
