Independence and sociability

The power of human connection is something that cannot be underestimated. As you’ll see in this chapter, we not only want to recognise the importance of social connections with friends and family in later life, but also explore the ways you can maintain and grow those relationships. Key to keeping our independence is our ability to stay mobile, and whether it’s you or your loved one making the transition into later life, there are plenty of ways to keep mobile with simple ‘everyday’ strategies. In this chapter, we’ll discuss the power of friendship and the importance of staying mobile, as well as exploring options for a vibrant, engaged ‘post-car’ life. For those who have a loved one who is struggling to stay social, the tips in this chapter will help you to find ways to get out and about.
