There's a lot more to ensuring happiness in retirement, explains life coach Hilary Henderson and nursing sister Irene Mabanga.

Pippa Hudson and her team hosted a live broadcast from Evergreen Lifestyle Village Muizenberg to mark Older Persons Week and talk all things retirement planning.

Henderson offered advice for older people who have not yet secured enough funds to fully enjoy their retirement.

1. Start an encore career to supplement your retirement income

An encore career is an new, part-time, flexible career that begins after the age of 65.

2. Downscale and save

Down-scaling means moving to smaller accommodation that is less expensive.

3.Make your home work for you

Convert your home into an accommodation outlet by renting rooms to students or registering on Airbnb.

Retirement should be a lovely phase.

Hilary Henderson, life coach

Retirement is about more than just financial planning and having enough money, Henderson explains.

However, it important for people to start planning for their retirement as early as possibile.

The earlier you start saving for retirement, the better.
