Australian Actor Shane Jacobson has helped us create a five-part series, The ‘R’ Word, to help dispel the myths of retirement living. Shane set out to find a retirement living skeptic who spent a few days in several Stockland retirement villages and then recorded their experience. Shane said he was eager to be involved in the light-hearted campaign after recently considering retirement living for his mother.
“We’re all getting old, or at least older,” he said. “It’s something everyone keeps talking about, but it’s a subject that’s not always comfortable to discuss. A big part of the trouble is working out how to get old. So why is it that we feel a bit funny talking about moving into retirement villages? That’s exactly what I wanted to find out.”
The podcast is both entertaining and informative, making for a compelling listen. You can listen to The R Word below or with iTunes.
