Older problem and planning after retirements
In Thailand, by the year 2022, Thai society become aged society. Thai society has older who over 60 years old more than 20 percent from general populations. We seem to unintentionally confront with aged society issue that most people seldom prepared. People got in trouble of insufficient money to live after retirement, lack of own living place to live until terminal stage of life. Many people had chronic disease that consequence themself lack quality of life.
Most people who experience these significant problems may be due to the fact that they earn for living in economic crisis society, lack of financial planning and unable to achieve retirement’s goal of themselves.
In present, the aged society with complex global situation seem to be challenging issue to live independently with financial freedom of older. We are in trouble of dependent supply chain that far away country ‘ s problem will affect our country’s population such as inflation of western country who export the construction material to Thailand, that affect the cost of residential area for older and family member much more increased.
Older with good quality of life, mostly lived with other people or alone but can be assessed by others in emergency condition. Older with independent status were doing normal daily activity as much as they were also lived with sufficient financial planning. Older well prepared for living in retirements period will be discipline patient who well controlled chronic disease by themself followed by medical advice.
To solve the hard situation of older problem, we need to considerably prepare for the topic of finance after retirement, health condition and society participation in order to support societal part of older life. Older need to prepare for saving money, invest money and may buy health insurance to assure security part of unpredicted disease. Older should adapt their living and positive attitude to be the lovely older person in society. Older need younger generation to look after themself. Younger people support older both direct and indirect way.
To sum up, older people with their family members and people in their society in Thailand should be alerted to take the older problem into account. We got awareness and neatly consider the significant of this problem. If we desired to be qualified independent older people, we need to plan ourselves as proper as we can. We will achieve our good quality of life and proud of being health, wealth, and society independent status.
