Abstract:
In the UK, there are now more people over state pensionable age than there are children. With the UK Government‟s plans to raise state pension age in line with increasing longevity, many older people may need further paid employment into what would formerly be termed their retirement years. The concept of retirement is becoming an unknown entity that brings challenges and uncertainty. It is a UK Government priority to address the need for cost-effective, innovative initiatives to promote health and well-being of older people, preparing them effectively for their retirement years. Occupational therapists are ideally placed to collaborate with such individuals to attain optimal levels of health, functioning and life satisfaction through meaningful occupation.
