Creating a happy retirement


With studies showing that retirement increases the chance of clinical depression by 40 per cent and physical ill health by 60 per cent, one thing is clear: the old concept of retirement isn’t working.

Why? Because we focus too much attention on saving for retirement and too little on planning how we intend to enjoy it. Indeed, all-too-often, we have no idea how much we’ll really need to lead the lives we’ve always dreamed of.

Pro-Vision Lifestyles is here to help. By incorporating both retirement planning advice and life skills development that will help achieve the best lifestyle for you.

We’ll also help you to truly understand how you want to spend your later life. And provide you with the tools to make it a reality.

The R Word


Is it time to retire the very concept of retirement? As many of us live and work longer than ever before, traditional views of retirement are based on outdated concepts and get in the way of a fulfilling work and post-work life.

On retirement, days are still 24 hours long and roughly 220 of them a year need to be filled with activities that keep you healthy, maintain and build connections, have a purpose, intellectually challenge you – and this requires planning.

Mike Middleton’s book, The R Word makes the case for reimagining retirement as an opportunity to refocus your life around the things you love for a happy and healthy later life.

Preparing your employees for retirement


There are no two ways about it: today, people now expect more from their employers. And simply offering private pension contributions won’t cut it any longer.

It’s time to offer something different. And make a more meaningful contribution to your employees’ lives as they embark on their post – or second career journeys.

We can support you in helping your employees plan to fill their newfound free time with rewarding activities and experiences that boost their health and wellbeing.
