Later Life Planning

Introduction to Later Life Planning

A guide to Later Life Planning.


As you get older there is a chance that you may become lonely or isolated.  This can be for different reasons. These could include:

  • A lack of finances (poverty)
  • Disabilities which affect your mobility
  • Lack of accessible transport
  • Loss of work and motivation
  • Lack of connections with other people

We did a vast amount of research to create The Later Life Planning guide. It helps you to make plans and prepare for your own later life from an earlier age.  It helps you to look at your finances going forward, including pension status. Think about social connections and your health and wellbeing. Gives you the opportunity to make changes whilst you are at an age to make a difference.

It is often said that ‘Hindsight is a wonderful thing’.  This booklet is to give each person the foresight into their own life. To make plans for their future. When in later life their hindsight will be, ‘I made plans and was prepared‘.
