There’s something we need to talk about…


Can I continue to work and be active after retirement? How do I find extra income if needed? When is it best to downsize? Where do I go when I need more care and support? These are all common issues in later life, but without good answers to these questions many people struggle, as they find it difficult to raise their concerns about ageing with loved ones, or feel embarrassed about asking for help.


This Guide is designed to provide an accessible, open and friendly introduction to many of the issues we sometimes have in later life. While it does not intend to provide all the answers or cover every possible topic, it does aim to help some older people and their families to open up and start to tackle these ‘challenging conversations’ with some very real and practical insights. With contributions ranging from Edwina Currie on both her and her Mother’s experiences of downsizing, to expert medical insights, a huge breadth of experience is available here in The Guide to Later Life.
