Grey Matters Guide
A guide to our Grey Matters initiative
At Anchor Hanover, we know the way to get the most out of your retirement years is to think ahead, talk about it with your family and friends - and do some planning.
Too many people still make life changing decisions for their retirement and care without knowing about or discussing all the options available to them.
With the help of expert psychologist, Jo Hemmings, we've created a guide to help you explore retirement living options and talk about the future with the important people in your life.
“I’ve spent my career understanding how people interact and what makes them tick. I know that talking sensitive subjects through is vital to wellbeing. It’s also easier to talk about things and make important decisions when you are not faced with an immediate crisis or issue.”
In this free guide you’ll find suggestions on how to start important conversations, information on your options and finances, personal stories from Anchor care home residents and some useful tips on how to get your conversation started.
Do you know what your loved ones really want from life when they get older?
However well you think you know someone, it is important to talk about what you both want from life as you get older.
It takes courage to start a difficult conversation but talking sensitive subjects through is vital to wellbeing.
The ice-breakers inside our Grey Matters Guide can help you start and keep the conversation going whether it's your own options you'd like to discuss or those of your family and friends.
