dc.description.abstractThe four main issues for a person facing retirement are income - having enough and having it regularly; having adequate health care; having appropriate living and housing arrangements; and having interest and purpose in life. Old people are not at all different from their younger contemporaries in the requirement that life must have some meaning. Our community, particularly through the activities of State and Federal Governments has made enormous advances in recent years in the first three of these areas, income, health, accommodation. The fourth issue, interest and purpose in life is often the least recognized and most neglected.en_US
