Generations Apart - Baby Boomers: Cathy

Duration: 01:24

Cathy would like to retire from the sheltered housing she runs, but can’t afford to. She doesn't qualify for a full state pension because she spent time back in Trinidad, where she was born, when her kids were growing up. And leaving work also means leaving home - she'll have to move out of the flat she gets as part of the job. She’s nervous about the future but feels she can’t put retirement off forever.
