Ecosystem Detail


Observations Part 1

• Our language around aging is negative

• As productivity goes down, the perceived value to society goes down

• Elders seen as takers

• There is high diversity in later life—wide range of healthy, capability, mobility, disabilities, etc.

• The number of elderly are growing, and we are living longer

• Higher ratio of women to men in later stages—as women outlive men

• Intergenerational is positive

• Ratio of elders to non-elders is shrinking from 1:7 to 1:3

• Elders can’t afford to be idle – fixed income and need for continued employment

• De facto: monogenerational is good

• Loss of elder knowledge do to generation gap
