Did you know that over the last few years many of the goal-posts for later life have changed?
With global life expectancy increasing 50% in just the last 50 years reaching 60 is no longer ‘the beginning of the end’ instead it is life’s ‘half time interlude’. With this change many of the life goals we once thought of as ‘given’ no longer apply. What do you think?
Old: a time to slow down and rest
New: a time for you to do what you want to do
Old: Lots is good; more is better
New: spend it or move it on, you can’t take it with you
Old: Private health Insurance and Care Home fees
New: keep healthy to avoid the above!
Old: Can’t be bothered
New: Keep working at them
Old: Lots is good, more is better
New: Only keep what you ‘know to be useful or believe to be beautiful’
Old: ‘I’m too old to change’
New: You’re never too old
Are you ready for a very different ‘later life’ to the one you were expecting?
