Plan Your Future
It can be unsettling when you’re unsure of what your future may hold. Having a plan in place can help reduce those feelings of uncertainty and give you some stability for your future.
Decide in advance whether you want to stay in your own home or downsize to an extra care living property. It may be helpful to take a look at your financial situation and make provisions for any additional expenses retirement may bring.
It can also be beneficial to create a list of the things you want to do, see or achieve in this time so you have ideas and goals to work towards. Try to factor in the costs of these, and work out how to budget for the dreams you feel are a priority in your retirement; perhaps you could open a separate savings account to start putting money aside to achieve these dreams.
