Some people experience retiring like hitting a brick wall, finding it hard to live on such a dramatically reduced income. Beehive is a seniors' employment co-operative where pensioners can work to earn a few extra dollars without affecting their social security payments.
This clip is an excerpt from Hitting A Brick Wall, an episode of the series Ageing in the New Age, produced in 1983 by Film Australia with the assistance of AMP Society.
Ageing in the New Age looks at issues relevant to an ageing population, including: approaching retirement, community support, living on a pension, elders in different cultural traditions, problems caused by dementia, and managing financial investments.
Ageing in the New Age was produced by Film Australia with the assistance of AMP Society.
