As people move towards and into their Retirement, they often fail to plan ahead for their future care and accommodation requirements. Pathways is a service that provides your clients with a road map to plan for their future.
While Australia is ageing at an increasing rate, the generation that now finds itself facing retirement is unlike its predecessors. This new audience of exiting and soon-to-be retirees is seeking a new perspective on ageing and how to be more in control of the uncertainties that accompany this challenging phase of life.
With a greater demand for care and accommodation, it will be those who are armed with knowledge that will be best placed to access those services. And from a lifestyle and financial perspective, they can plan ahead to ensure that the decisions they make lead to optimal outcomes.
If you are a financial planner or health professional, Pathways is perfect for your clients. This is a specialised service that develops a personalised management plan for guiding current and future retirees through their changing needs in housing, health and wellness as well as their lifestyle. Our consultants can work along with you to develop Pathways plans that will help your clients navigate through the challenges that come with age. After all, retiring from work shouldn’t mean retirement from life.
