For young people, happiness is all about sensual pleasure. As we get older, we look for inner satisfaction and peace of mind. Those approaching retirement age always look for a day when they no longer have to worry about anything. However, how to achieve that? This page provides a comprehensive guide on how to find joy in life through Lifelong Learning
(which includes Interest Classes
and Courses and Seminars
) and Lifelong Working
(which included Jobs for the Retired
and Voluntary Work
). This is to enable those who are about to retire or have retired to think of what they wish they would have done but not yet done, and to explore how far they could prove their worth by further developing their hidden potentials. Or alternatively, they may consider transferring their wealth of knowledge and experience to the younger generation through continued employment and community service. These are all ways to make one's later life far more meaningful than just hanging around every day.
Good planning is essential for a full and rewarding life. One would have peace of mind when one is financially sound. In this page, we provide information on Living Support for the Elderly
and List of Allowances for the Elderly
to enable residents in Hong Kong who are aged 65 or above to understand the range of living subsidy and allowances available to them, as well as the range of services offered to the retired by Voluntary Organizations
Even if you are financially sound, you still need to manage your Personal Finance
wisely. Risk Assessment
is required before making any investment. It is only through good management of your assets that you could move on to the next stage of life without worries. To further ease your mind, you may consider making a Will
and an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA)
well in advance to prepare for all eventualities.
Master your life! Having worked hard in all our younger years, it is time that we would do something to please ourselves. Wonderful memories always stay with us even when we are not as mobile as before. By replaying our Happy Moments
, we know that we have lived our lives.
