Retiring Well Publications
Helen Calder, the founder of Retiring Well has recently published the Retiring Well Workbooks in two volumes: "Preparing for Retirement" and "New Patterns of Living in Retirement". These can be used individually or in a small group. They are provided in courses run by Helen. There are 16 sessions on the same topics covered in the courses.
