Assuming that a woman retires today at 65, she can expect to have another 20 productive years before slowing down. The central theme of Every Woman's Guide to Retirement is that doing some planning - financial, housing and social - will lead to a more rewarding retirement phase.
Women retirees face different issues to male retirees. They retire with less superannuation than men, but they live longer and are the main carers for parents, grandchildren and usually their partners. Many books about retirement just focus on finances and highlight endless travel and golf.
Every Woman's Guide to Retirement has a far more comprehensive coverage range of topics - work, housing, health, aged care and legal matters - and it offers specific, practical advice to enable readers to manage typical difficulties and follow their own interests to create a personally meaningful retirement.
Without being unrealistically cheerful, readers are encouraged to follow their own interests and use their existing skills to create a retirement of revival and rewiring that is personally meaningful.
Every Woman's Guide to Retirement offers personal and comprehensive guidance using researched information and case studies to encourage women to make the most of their retirement opportunities. This book encourages an active, connected lifestyle, staying healthy, lifelong learning, de-cluttering, and even online dating to make the most of this time.
For the retiree in your life - whether yourself or someone you know - Every Woman's Guide to Retirement shows you how to prepare for, and enjoy, a rewarding "Third Age" on your own terms.
