Later life should be fulfilling, a time for enjoying family and friends. An opportunity to discover new things and continue to do the things you’ve always enjoyed. Yet our Grey Matters research shows that later life can also be a time that people avoid thinking about, or planning for.

At Anchor, we know the way to get the most out of your retirement years is to think ahead, talk about it with your family and friends – and do some retirement planning. Too many people make life changing decisions about their retirement, housing and care without understanding all the options available.

With the help of expert psychologist, Jo Hemmings, we've created a guide to help you start having conversations with the important people in your life about retirement living and care choices in an open, clear and supportive way.

We’ve got pointers for the best way to get the conversation started in a positive way with the people who are most dear to you.
