Retiring Lives PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Retiring Lives free pdf Retiring is a challenging transition, or series of transitions. It affects social, economic, emotional and physical lives, and decisions about relationships, places to live, indeed all aspects of being alive. Retiring Lives presents fourteen personal real life stories from people at various stages of retiring. Each author recounts their own story about retiring, bringing together many aspects of the experiences: the social, psychological and practical. These inspirational and illustrated stories will encourage the reader to hold up these experiences to their own, learn from comparisons and similarities and extend their own thinking. The book also includes chapters on setting up and running a retiring group- the process of retiring as an aspect of professional development and reoccurring financial themes- and the benefits, allowances and privileges of becoming older. These contributions will stir the reader into becoming actively involved in the planning for their own retirement. This book is essential reading for those working within the education sector. It will also benefit all those considering retiring or changing how they view their working lives, whatever their professional background. It will be useful for those who want to set up or advise on retiring groups and workshops both within and outside their organisations.
