for Later in Life
Investors who ask themselves what sort of lifestyle they want to enjoy later
in life -- and then translate that into a realistic plan for today -- should be
well placed for the future.
The good news -- a recent report1 of the spending requirements of people
over 65 has found most of today's retirees have a comfortable standard of
living -- and only a few are struggling financially.
The not-so-good news: the report confirmed that although people can
live on New Zealand Superannuation alone, they will have a lifestyle that
affords few options, unless they have other forms of income or savings.
What this report shows, is that the choices you make now will determine
what choices you have in retirement. It is a question of making realistic
choices right now -- and realising that the best asset you have is time.

needs to address for themselves, when considering their
impending retirement. There are no rules of thumb, everyone
is different. It's about people taking control of their own future.
They need to have a vision of how they want to be living; how much they'll
need to save from today to fund that lifestyle; and work backwards so that
there is a robust plan in place.
And it's about having information that allows people to make some
decisions about how they want to live in retirement. Westpac's role is
helping savers and investors to make the dollars-and-cents decisions, and
to invest their money wisely. It is up to individuals to ask themselves the
tough questions. Then we can discuss their savings needs and guide them
through the options.

WHEN YOU NEED IT
One of the difficult things about
ageing is that our minds and
bodies change at different speeds.
Sometimes neither of these is in
line with our expectations at a
particular age. To help stay safe
as life changes, it's important to
be aware of alternatives that can
This could be as simple as
considering a medical alarm
to help stay safe while living
independently in your own home
in the community. Often, the
additional benefit is the peace
of mind that this creates for your
Rather than automatically sending
an ambulance when the alarm
button is pressed, our monitoring
staff will listen and discuss the
situation, then offer an appropriate
range of options, from phoning a
friend or neighbour to pop over,
to sending an ambulance if that's
the most appropriate help. We
can get the police or fire service if
that's what's required.

you stayed on the line until
the ambulance arrived" said
Staying on the line until help
arrives is an important part of the
Bupa service. It's what we do,
and we find it makes people more
Gladys Mary Care Home
When things get too difficult, a
move into a care home can be a
wise choice. While some people
will hold out against this, many
find that once the move is made,
the sense of safety, security and
having care at hand compensates
for many of the changes.
Many people at Gladys Mary
Care Home, in Napier, feel this
way. They enjoy the bright,
sunny environmentand the very
genuine sense of respect for
privacy and individual needs.
