This curriculum guide was developed for use in Edison State Community College's (ESCC's) Community Pre-Retirement Training Program. The first of the guide's seven modules provides a brief look at retirement, retirement planning, and the ESCC program. The second module focuses on relationships, considering issues such as communication, finances, and sexuality in marriage; relationships with children and other family members; and friendships. The third module examines options for leisure, providing a self-assessment instrument, to help identify interests, and discussions on hobbies, time, service to others, income sources, keeping mentally active, and a personal plan and timetable. The fourth module helps the individual who is planning for retirement to make financial preparations, considering topics such as investment, trust funds, gift and estate taxes, annuities, and social security. Legal concerns are addressed in the fifth module, which includes sections on wills, probate, estate taxes and planning, and executors', administrators', and attorneys' fees. The sixth module provides information on housing options and health. The final module looks at some of the potential crises and difficult decisions that may face older adults, such as the loss of a spouse, funeral arrangements, choosing an executor, remarriage, second careers, consumer protection, and retirement goals. Most of the modules conclude with a bibliography. (AYC)
