Baby boomers put them­selves first

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

YORK­SHIRE baby boomers are mak­ing life-chang­ing de­ci­sions to en­sure that their re­tire­ment years are the best of their lives, ac­cord­ing to new re­search by re­tire­ment liv­ing spe­cial­ists Mc­Carthy & Stone.

A poll of the over-60s found that one-in-three felt more em­pow­ered to change their lives as they got older, putting them­selves first for the first time in years and even mak­ing dif­fi­cult life choices.

More than one-in-five fi­nally sev­ered ties with friends and fam­ily who didn’t make them happy and nearly a quar­ter had moved some­where they’d al­ways wanted to live. Al­most 60 per cent also said they fi­nally had the time and money to spend on them­selves.
