The New Age of RetirementIN SENIORS' HEALTH
According to the Administration on Aging, by 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons. As baby boomers slowly ease into retirement, conventional ideals associated with retirement continue to evolve. Unlike previous generations of retirees, baby boomers are living healthier, more active lifestyles and aren’t leaving the workforce until much later in life. While playing bingo on a Saturday night might have been the highlight of your grandma’s week, baby boomers are shunning the typical retirement clichés.
Some seniors are deciding to work well into their 70s, while others are carving new career paths. Whether they’re trying to maintain mental stimulation or keep a stable income, retirees are recreating retirement.
Retirees no longer want to live in segregated communities away from other generations. They want to live in vibrant cities with bustling downtowns. To meet these demands, assisted living organizations are making changes, such as offering more services that allow older adults to remain in their homes and feel more involved in their communities.
