Abstract/Summary

As people increasingly tend to live for longer, the study of aging has become a growing area of research. Among the themes that have been highlighted in the international literature, the topic of retirement is gaining prominence due to the increasing number of years individuals are expected to live in retirement. This extension of retirement, as a stage of life, means that understanding the aging and adjustment processes and what older people are actually looking for is important for promoting emotional and psychological well-being for those living longer. Many studies have been conducted on the psychological aspects involved in the adjustment to retirement and old age. Some studies have covered the issues of globalization and even migration in retirement, but few publications specifically explore the issue of repatriation as part of the transition to retirement.
