________________________________________

Retirement can mean leaving behind a clearly defined role for an uncertain future – people can struggle with the fear of being irrelevant, feelings of living without a purpose, and a general lack of meaning in this new stage of life.

Or, retirement can mean a new freedom, an ‘encore career,’ greater influence with family and community, and a renewed intimacy and dependence on God.


What makes for a successful transition into the so-called ‘Third Age’?

Join us at our Fall breakfast as we unpack the subject of aging and retirement.

Tom and a medical expert on aging – Dr. Amanda Hill – will lead the discussion, and we will hear stories from those who are approaching retirement, those who are in the midst of it, and those have been retired for years.

Dr. Amanda Hill is a Division Head for Providence Health Care at St. Paul's Hospital and Clinical Assistant Professor at UBC. She specializes in aging and health.


We will identify the key areas of discussion:

  • Social – working at good relationships at all stages of our lives in order avoid loneliness later in life,
  • Physical – looking after our health,
  • Spiritual – renewing our sense of God daily and perhaps seeking a new calling or mission,
  • Mental – finding intellectual challenges that are stimulating and fun,
  • Financial – making sure that our budget matches our lifestyle expectations,
  • Vocational – finding relevance and purpose through work, mentoring or volunteering.
