Centre for Ageing Better | September 2018 | Planning and preparing for later life
The Centre for Ageing Better has released Planning and preparing for later life, a report that summarises the findings of a multi-disciplinary scoping review on the topic of planning and preparing for later life. This review focuses on planning for later life (age 60 and over) from mid-life (age 40-60) onwards. It characterises planning for later life as the range of activities people deliberately pursue with the aim of achieving desired outcomes in later life (Source: Planning and Preparing for Later Life).
The review set out to answer the following questions:
- Who does or doesn’t plan and prepare for later life during mid-life?
- What are the barriers and enablers to planning and preparing for later life?
- What can be done to encourage more people to overcome the barriers to planning?
