"Not Everybody Peaks at 50!"

 Post-50 adults we influence in the marketplace.

One of the most obvious expressions of this is in today's age-friendly dwelling places- the subject of the on-going series about aging-in-place.  Another interesting potential outcome according to the results of  the survey is that  aging-in-a-community-setting  not only is attractive, but is preferred among many older adults and families.


When it comes to the choice to Age-at-Home  older adults weigh many good alternatives- with interest.There is much conversation today about sustainable innovation, enduring excellence and simple choices for feathered nests. We created a survey to review those choices.

3. PICTURE A PLACE TO LIVE A LIFETIME

Whether in a LEED Certified Neighborhood®, one featuring numbers of new Green-Built Homes, in an historical neighborhood, or alongside an Audubon Certified Golf Course, we found that "Lucky Few" (1929-1945) & "Baby Boomers" (1946-1964) are not only curious about, but demanding eco-friendly “standards.”

“We have discovered the benefits of a green in a creative (un) retirement- good for the environment, which in turn is healthier for all ages.”

Look for permaculture, shared organic gardens where communities grow their own produce, edible landscaping, solar orientation, a focus on renewable energy and savings in energy costs, maintenance-free, non-toxic construction, wonderful interior air quality (allergies be gone) use of non-toxic paint, water conservation, eco-friendly plumbing and more.


“Growing your own food also is healthy and great for exercise, stress reduction, relaxation, and positive attitude.”


The Village Concept, a New Urbanist Design concept, offers one attractive lifestyle our researchers at The Sage Companion are exploring. It can include living in green-friendly, multi-generational communities with amenities that appeal to all- regardless of age.
