Transition to retirement
Roger J. Stancliffe et al
Sydney University Press
ISBN: 9781743323274

As much as everyone groans from time to time about the humdrum and stresses of work, retirement is an unsettling prospect for most people. It's a major transition in anyone's life and change of this magnitude often arouses anxiety. This is much more so for people with disability, particularly intellectual disability.

But, as Transition to retirement shows, it doesn't have to be like that. The Transition to Retirement (TTR) program has been developed in response to a genuine problem: the need for an effective approach to supporting older employees to build an active, socially inclusive lifestyle after retirement.

The book, with included DVD, is available for purchase from Sydney University Press: http://purl.library.usyd.edu.au/sup/9781743323274.
