Dr. Letty Kuan RN, RGC, EdD is the one who formulated this theory. This theory states that retirement is another phase in a person’s life that would require some adjustments. According to the theory, there are some roles that the person has already learned to play for many years.
Now that the role has to be discontinued, there is a period of adjustment for this too so that the person can adjust to yet again, another new role in his/her life. There are different things that can make the role discontinuity and retirement become positive in people’s lives.
