Framework for planning a successful retirement

Wheatley, Marie (2013). Framework for planning a successful retirement. Nursing Management, 20(1) pp. 23–25.



Ideas about retirement have changed. Just a few decades ago there was a cut off date when workers had an expected date of retirement, but today this decision is generally left up to the individual. Retirement affects people in different ways and there is some recognition that they may experience similiar stages to those of bereavement including loss, denial and anger, which require adjustment. This article looks at how to make decisions about planning retirement and follows the three stages of preparation suggested by Daniel and Beer (2011), whose framework is aimed at those reaching this stages of their lives.
