Retirement is a time that some people look forward to. Their ability to spend more time with their family and friends and activities that they enjoy, whilst for others it can be a time where they struggle to find their identity, having worked for such a long period of time. Either way it is a period of time of great change and this could mean a move to Park Homes Gloucester way such as the ones available from http://www.parkhomelife.com/our-parks/orchard-park-homes-gloucester-gloucestershire/ to live in a single storey dwelling, and it might also mean an adjustment to your daily routine with no long commute to work to consider.
It is often thought that 65 is the retirement age as this has been the age at which people are given their state pension, although this has now been changed. But in actual fact there are people who retire before this and many others who carry on working into their 70s, it very much depends on the individual person and the work that they do.
The number of people who volunteer dramatically increases in retirement as people look for ways they can give back to communities and can find things to do during the same time that they have each day. It is often a time that hobbies are restarted and new ones are embarked upon. This is also a way that people can interact with others and socialise and this can be one of the difficult areas for people of this age as the hustle and bustle of work life comes to an end.
