The continuum of care pioneer is launching a podcast on Tuesday, exploring some of the burning issues ageing people face.

Ryman HealthCare’s Pod of the 3rd Age (P3A), hosted by radio and TV personality Jo Stanley, delves into the opportunities, challenges and complexities of life for those 65-plus, offering practical information and advice on how to make these years as full and enriching as possible.

This follows the acclaimed TV series The Best 30 Years by DCM Group, publisher of, and Proof and Ageless by Over 50s land lease resorts operator GemLife.

Featuring interviews with experts and seniors, P3A will explore everything from the practicalities of downsizing your home, how to combat loneliness and social dislocation, the importance of spirituality to overall sense of wellbeing, and the financial considerations when looking for housing or aged care options.

Episodes journey into the lives of real people, their aspirations, worries and unique approaches to ageing, lifting the lid on an often-misunderstood chapter of life while providing helpful insights for those entering their Third Age or supporting a loved one who is.

The first episode of the six-part series, featuring decluttering guru Peter Walsh, will launch on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and on Tuesday, 11 June 2024.

Peter’s advice for people moving to a smaller property is simple.

“Start small and start today,” he says.

“If the stuff you own doesn’t help you create the life you want, why do you own it?”

Other P3A episodes will feature Ending Loneliness Together CEO Dr Michelle Lim, Meaningful Ageing Australia CEO Rachael Wass, financial expert and commentator Rachel Lane, and Retirement Living Council Executive Director Daniel Gannon.
