Retire with Confidence: An Info Series for 55+

Retirement is often viewed as the end-goal to a lifetime of working, however it is also a time of momentous change. Some struggle to seek an identify outside of the workforce while others fear a loss of income, and struggle with complexities caused by debilitating health. It is increasingly important to acknowledge the need for an individualized retirement plan, as no stage in life is a one size fits all.

‘Retire with Confidence’ is an info series of free sessions with the goal of assisting adults 55+ as they plan for or enter retirement. This is an ideal time to introduce connections, resources and information that help to establish healthy life decisions into older adulthood. Retire with Confidence approaches health from a holistic perspective and go beyond physical health to include financial, psychological and social well-being.

Through our work in information and referral, PIN understands the services most requested and are in a unique position to promote those services even before they are needed. Furthermore, the onset of retirement is a prime period for promotion of preventative resources that target risk factors often accompanying older adulthood, such as social isolation and deteriorating health. Through our work to promote and recruit volunteers, we are well positioned to help seniors find meaningful ways to engage in their community through volunteering.

With thanks to funding from the Government of Ontario, PIN is pleased to host this series complete with hot topic speakers, select information booths along with food, drink and raffle prizes. Spaces are limited and registration is required. Learn more through the links below.
