Homesharing is a growing trend that addresses a range of housing needs. For older adults, it offers financial, social and other benefits for those who want to stay in their homes. For others, often younger, it provides a solution to affordability as well as social and other needs. Join us to learn more about homesharing, how it works, it‘s benefits for individuals as well as communities, and how it might work for you.
Too often, population aging is viewed as a burden to society – a “silver tsunami” destined to wreak terrible havoc. The problem may not be our growing legions of older adults. Instead, it may be our absence of imagination and creativity regarding what wonderful purpose all this longevity and maturity might serve. The population of people over 65 is projected to grow to over 100 million over the next two decades as the baby boom becomes an age wave, and the potential “upside” of aging will multiply.
Join Dr. Ken Dychtwald to examine how older adults are redefining success in later life in terms of the potential for “generosity,” and seeing giving back as the key to not only being useful, but youthful as well. Attendees will gain insights to understand how giving benefits the giver and understand the individual, organizational and community implications.
