Retirement fundi Henry Spencer has written several features for us over the years.
Henry lives in Pietermaritzburg with his wife Ruth, and they have two daughters. After a successful business career Henry entered the non-profit field in 1993, when he was appointed CEO of TAFTA (The Association for the Aged) – a leading charity whose focus is care of the elderly and vulnerable. Commencing university studies late in life, he obtained a BA Degree in 1997 at the age of 55 followed by a Master’s Degree in Applied Ethics (cum laude) four years later.
After nine years at the helm of TAFTA Henry resigned and relocated to the UK where he worked in various retirement homes for several years before returning to South Africa in 2007 to retire. Henry continues to be involved with the elderly, consulting for a number of homes and retirement complexes in order to follow his own advice to keep pedalling and staying abreast with contemporary developments in the field of elderly care.
Henry has written numerous books and worked with people with dementia for over 22 years, and is happy to help and offer advice to retirees in our community.
