Retirement can act as a catalyst for declining wellbeing effected by the diversity of an individual’s health status, gender, and socio-economic circumstances. ​Ageing research shows a variety of patterns in retirement lifestyles. However, it is evident that well-being in early retirement is an important indicator of future health status and survival. ​The transition to retirement (TtR) is a phase in the life course where individuals may be making normative lifestyle changes thus presenting an opportunity to intervene to promote healthier behaviour.​ Synchronising intervention programmes with life transitions has become a significant public health strategy. It provides a window of opportunity to intervene, supporting healthy behaviours and health promotion with preventative purposes.
