Notes and References

Here is a list of items we should consider when we plan for retirement: financial arrangements, living arrangements, personal care, healthcare plans, emergency preparation, assistive technology, community participation, and end of life preparation.

We will talk about these items in more detail in the modules: Retirement Planning Part 1 and 2. Please remember every one of us is unique; therefore, there may be other ideas or actions that are important to you, but which are not covered in these modules. When planning for retirement, don't forget to discuss everything with family, friends, and support staff to express your particular needs and wants in order to develop an individual plan.
