About the Book

Thanks to advances in health care, expectations for retired life have changed radically. There are no longer only two phases of life (childhood and adulthood)—there is a third vital phase called Olderhood. Once you are free from the burden of work, you can experience a new and fulfilling life-but only if you learn how to reinvent yourself and make a realistic plan regarding how you are going to spend your time.

The Third Journey explores the emotional, financial, physical, and psychological issues that arise in retirement. Authors William R. Storie and Robin W. Trimingham seek to help you unravel your motivations as you prepare for and transition from the workplace into retirement. They take a detailed look at many of the obstacles and personal fears that people encounter as they age and offer perspectives and solutions for everything from downsizing and dealing with relatives to overcoming grief and loneliness, living on a fixed income, keeping busy, dating, and preventing elder abuse.

This guide offers a comprehensive discussion of the challenges and opportunities of later life, providing you with the tools to build a productive and satisfying retirement life.
