Planning your Retirement can mean more than just Money in your Pocket Posted on August 16, 2016 (May 13, 2020) by Caitlin Marsh You’re unique so your retirement will be unique too. The one thing that will be shared amongst most people is thinking about the cost and financial implications of retirement. It might not be the most fun consideration, but it’s wise to try and map out your retirement plan. There’s another thing that people sometimes don’t prioritise enough, happiness. You’ve earnt your retirement and now it’s time to relax, focus on you and think about what really makes you happy. The biggest prize of all is time itself and you’ll have an abundance of it to fill with things you enjoy doing. A New Adventure At Platinum Skies, our properties are built with you in mind. We know that some of you will be new to Christchurch and the area; you’ll be starting out on a brand new adventure. That’s why we ensure that your home will be built amongst attractive outdoor spaces and in vibrant, warm communities, ready to welcome you. It can be daunting when you move anywhere new, but having the peace of mind that you’ll be in an environment filled with character and charm is a good start. Happy Times A recent study found that people living in Dorset have some of the highest contentment levels in the UK and are more likely to be satisfied with their lives. Not bad, eh? The relaxing environment is what drew us to building in Christchurch and creating a happy community is something we think should be prioritised for our residents. We want to make sure that we provide you with everything you’ll need for a happy, healthy lifestyle. That’s why we have a Lifestyle Manager on site to ensure you settle in properly and point you in the direction of all of the services that we offer. You’ll have access to guest suites, delicious bistro dining and wellbeing sanctuaries too. In terms of your own health and wellbeing, we can arrange care services for you; help out around your home or full domiciliary care provision. Just tell us what you need and we’ll work with you to make your life as comfortable as it can be. Your Environment It’s time to brush off that bucket list and get started on the activities that you’ve never had enough time for. As we’ve mentioned before, we plan our properties in areas where you’ll have access to the nearby great outdoors and green, natural spaces for you to explore. Whether that’s areas of outstanding natural beauty, where you can watch the world go by, nature reserves with a range of different terrains that you can cycle through or rivers and lakes for you to boat or fish on. Whatever it is that interests you, now is the time for you to focus on what you really want to spend your time doing. Picking up new hobbies and interests is great and learning skills can be done at any point in life. The accommodating, social communities in our properties mean that you’ll be sure to find like-minded neighbours and find the encouragement to try new things. Talk to Platinum Skies Retiring can be a leap into the unknown, but that’s exactly why you should be excited.
