Embracing the upside of aging

Inspired Aging taps into the tremendous potential of life after middle age by helping people tap into their skills, their passions, their well-earned wisdom. Boomers are overturning traditional views to embrace lives fueled by a sense of purpose, a determination to overcome limits and the ability to turn dreams into reality.

The boomer generation is redefining aging. We’ve passed the midpoint of life with a renewed commitment to ensure that what we do next matters. And it does. It matters to us, our family, our community, and the world in which we live.

Yet media stories and ads consistently connect aging to loss – of health, loved ones and financial resources. Or aging is depicted as moving toward a life of leisure, when in fact many of us feel there’s still a lot more to do and be. We need to share stories of the change makers so that we can change the narrative on aging, and continue to inspire ourselves and others to live better as we live longer.

ARE YOU ASKING 'WHAT'S NEXT'?

Inspired Aging provides presentations and workshops that focus on practical tips and tools for both the aging population and those that serve them. Let’s learn to live better as we live longer.

Aging is inevitable. Aging well is a choice.

The sheer size of the post-war baby boomer generation has impacted change in our society in areas ranging from education to employment, child-rearing to housing, and healthcare to financial planning. Today, for the first time in history, Canadians over the age of 65 outnumber those under 15, and life expectancy continues to grow. By 2036 it is estimated we will represent 25% of the population. The time has arrived to write a new chapter for this stage of life.

We are driven by a desire to remain engaged and productive in positive and meaningful ways. We are exploring this next chapter of our lives with interest, curiosity and an openness around “what’s next.”

Inspired Aging is dedicated to helping boomers get from where they are to where they want to be by:

  • Sharing stories of people who are successfully pursuing passions and goals that provide a sense of meaning and fulfilment.
  • Delivering presentations and workshops to groups and organizations, highlighting tools and tips to prepare for, and embrace life in retirement.
