“Boomers are looking for places that will help them thrive at every life stage, not withdraw and become irrelevant.”
– Ryan Frederick
“Yes, we are experiencing a longevity revolution, but what is needed and what older adults want is a vitality revolution. Older adults, especially Boomers, just don’t want to live longer, rather they want to live lives of vitality and purpose and connection.”
– Bob Kramer
“It’s only in Washington where serving the needs of tens of millions of people is called an unaffordable cost and financial burden. Among entrepreneurs, serving the needs of tens of millions of people is called an opportunity.”
– Jody Holtzman
“We are at home when we are living in a place and in the manner of our own choosing.”
– Bill Thomas
“Why do we fight aging when it’s the natural progression of life? I say embrace it and celebrate it. We only hurt ourselves when we choose to buy into the negative stereotypes about aging.”
– Jill Vitale-Aussem
“Our society will always need senior living. However, the appeal of those properties to boomers will lie in how much freedom they are given to re-invent them and govern them…to rebuild them in their own image.”
– Sara Zeff Geber, Ph.D.
