Business

The consumer marketplace for aging is a booming one, what with the baby boomer cohort turning age 65 at a rapid clip. But Business & Aging at ASA means something more: We analyze and advise on retirement trends, ageism in marketing and workforce issues. How long should we work and will there be enough of a caregiving workforce to take care of us as we age? You’ll find thoughts on these questions, as well as perspectives on smart retirement planning, the complexities of long-term-care insurance  and recareering and many other such transitions in later life. The business of aging is our business, so check in here for the latest information and news.

Why We All Should Care about the Direct Care Workforce

posted 02.21.2017

By Daniel R. Wilson

Have you ever helped an older person navigate the complexities of life—arranging transportation to a doctor’s appointment, setting up meals on wheels, or even ensuring they can see a medical professional—only to find out they are alone at home with no family or friends to support them? Who will ensure they are able to bathe each day and help them with the tasks of daily living we all take for granted? If you’ve ever cared for an older person, you know that the questions are endless.

Intergenerational Success Stories: Tech-Savvy Millennial Volunteers in Aging

By Debby Dodds

We are nearly two decades into the 21st Century and the social consequences of aging still regularly include feeling isolated or depressed. The World Health Organization recently stated that, “Older people who feel they are a burden perceive their lives to be less valuable, putting them at risk of depression and social isolation.”

Differences Challenge Assumptions.
—Anne Wilson Schaef

What comes to mind when you think about getting older? Often it is assumed that with aging comes a host of health problems and limitations. Yet, according to the National Center for Health Statistics (2014), less than one quarter of U.S. adults over the age of 65 identified as having only “fair” or “poor” health.
