Hilary Henderson is a life coach, specialising in supporting those who are making the transition to retirement.
She has published a handbook titled “7 questions to answer before you turn 65.”
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.

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.
