Let’s Reinvent Retirement Lives
The choices in our way of living need to be expanded. Our population is aging and with the huge numbers of boomers aging we will have challenges that we have not seen before. The great news is that we have more information than ever to help us imagine new ways of reducing dementia, reducing debility and creating meaningful lives in the advanced decades of life.
Over and over it is shown that relationships to one another, physical activity and healthy eating each combat the physical and mental declines that many retirees experience. Current ideas about “Aging in Place” make sense for those who have an active social life where they are. When “Aging in Place” perpetuates isolation and loneliness, it is not good for health. “Aging in Community” is a new choice that opens opportunities to create new relationships that enable more meaningful engaged lives. Lives filled with purpose are healthier happier lives.
