2400 in next 30-35 years is going to be nothing.

I work for health sector and I have been told 'Not to save anything' or if you do, 'Gift' it to your childrens. It sounds redicilous 'not to save anything' but what is the point of saving if you will have to sell your property later on to pay for placement in which you will go?

Yes, we can plan to go to a warmer country where things may be cheap but at some stage, and I can tell you, we all will be suffering from memory issues, balance problem and many other musculoskeletal pathologies. And at that point, you either need 24/7 live in carer to assist you or you go into a placement....

Perhaps, by saving you can have 24/7 live in carer to assist you compared to going into a nursing / residential home...
