"...vanish the  humdrum, make the moment new..."



UNRetire ? Is that a good thing?


It is IF you conclude that Post-50-People continue to  be imaginative and brightly coherent. When talking with people who are living the dream as older adults- who continue to make savvy choices -  plan for on-going quality of life- consider how and where  to live - you may find that staying vibrant and connected ("un-retiring" ) is a central theme.

Older adults are re-defining retirement —thinking of this life-stage as a creative opportunity or UN-Retirement- and looking at re-branding aging stereotypes.

With this in mind,  The Sage Companion Project created a survey (see results below)  to put a spotlight on what is most important to people who understand what it is like to be an older adult as they reach "retirement" age.


WELLNESS MATTERS

According to our respondents, choices about preventative measures for good health and future health-care costs are  important. Popular amenities on the well-being list include: spas/fitness facilities with professional trainers, yoga studios, media rooms, walking/biking paths and cafes. (refers to the work of expert- Dr. Charles Schewe)


NATURAL NEIGHBORHOODS and  AGING-IN-PLACE

" Assisted living"? Not so much. In fact, Post 50 People surveyed said they prefer natural neighborhoods  or pocket neighborhoods and green-friendly communities. Responders say they desire to be actively involved in the choices that can meet their needs when it comes to social, cultural,and recreational requirements. Most said that   where and how they choose to live  includes remaining in their own homes.



THE ULTIMATE FEATHERED NEST also known as  Aging-in- a- PaLaCE

Of course there are as many choices for lifestyle and attractive living spaces as there are "boomers" and older adults Post 50  (and that's a lot of people.) Choices depend on what is most desirable for each of us- individually, and as a group.

  A SURVEY 




unretire

A recent survey conducted for The Sage Companion Project revealed any number of interesting trends and preferences. Here are a few...

P R E F E R E N C E S

  •   Continuing to be active - and especially in the game of golf is high on the list.
  •  A zero-step home on  with universal design elements that work for residents regardless of age or physical ability is  popular, as well.
  •   Most of our readers said that prefer an green-friendly environment both inside the home and outside. Trails, walkways, rain gardens...gazebos, picnic areas...gentle lakes for canoes, native landscaping are words we hear more and more often.
  • As we UN-Retire our survey points to the desire to be in a setting and dwelling that supports sustainable excellence.

  • Older adults, boomers and leading edge seniors, seem to prefer high-performance homes with green features and a community where they can participate in an active lifestyle.

    Due diligence is essential. Planning ahead means investing time and energy in making wise choices in advance.

    Wise choices for aging-in-place may include an accessible home on a golf course. It may include active lifestyle amenities such as tennis courts, a swimming pool, a clubhouse with restaurant, and cultural and social activities and/or a multi-generational home in a walkable neighborhood.
