For many people, retirement offers the opportunity to engage in activities that they have always wanted to but never had the time to do. There are many causes that your loved one can volunteer in.

Many retirees have a wealth of experience that is needed by many of these charity organizations. Volunteering is also a great way for your loved one to make a difference in the surrounding community.
If your loved one has always wanted to travel, then the retirement years might be just the right time to go to all the places he or she has dreamt of. Your loved one can choose to travel out of the country, within the country, or even within the state. Your loved one can also combine all these three to create great memories. One cost-effective way of traveling is to join a travel group. These groups are able to leverage their numbers in order to negotiate better ticket and hotel rates. This is not only cheaper but your loved one will also get to meet many traveling companions and make new friends.
Not only is gardening a great way to while the hours but it offers your loved one an opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sunlight.
