Directions in Retirement

Directions in Retirement - P - see Accessibility Key for Group Venues.
Leader: George Cleland - see Group Leaders Contact Details.
Timing: Monthly, 3rd Mondays, 10.30 -12.30.
Location: Central Library.
Activity: For most of us retirement is a process, not an event. Whether approaching retirement, transitioning into retirement, or already here, change needs to be managed,and, ideally, planned. This group will explore together such transitions including topics such as identity and community, values, relationships, occupations and interests, learning, health and well-being, and finance and legal issues.
This group has run successfully for the last two years and will restart for another year soon if there is enough interest. The group considers ageing in a positive light and have lively discussions about how to face the challenges encountered as we get older. Please contact George Cleland - see Group Leaders Contact Details - if you are interested.
