Thinking about later life
It is important to consider how you are going to live well in old age. In Britain, we have an ageing population with over 10 million people being over the age of 65. Therefore older people are working longer and offering a vital contribution to the community.
If you are retired or are working less, you may be interested in volunteering in your local community.
It is also important to stay connected - so keep in touch with local groups, friends and family.
- Consider your health and wellbeing and how you can maintain your independence.
The Health and Wellbeing sections will give you more information and advice.
- If you are caring for a friend or family member, make sure you are receiving the correct support.
Visit the Carers pages for more information and advice.
- You may require some help at home or to get out and about.
Find more information and advice in the Staying Independent section.
- Acknowledge your finances.
The Money and Legal Affairs section will provide you with more information.
