Retirement is a major life change that can often bring up challenges such as feeling a loss of identity or a desire to reinvent oneself. After spending many decades dedicated to a career, the retirement process can also lead to increased feelings of boredom and loneliness for some men. This group will discuss various strategies to combat negative feelings, identify meaningful activities, and will offer participants an opportunity to meet other local retirees looking to discuss the same topic. The goal will be to gain a new sense of purpose and make social connections as you navigate retirement. Group will be facilitated by COA Social Worker, Kate Burnham. Feel free to call with any questions 781-235-3961.

Joy recountsthe times she and her husband traveled by horseback, zodiac, combi, tundra buggy, and small aircraft to photograph and write about the natural world on all seven continents.
