Bringing Aging Services into a New Decade
By Roberto Muñiz
It’s hard to believe it’s 2020 and along with a new year, a new decade. As the past decade came to a close, it had me thinking about the next one: what’s the future look like for aging services in these next ten years?
One major shift on my mind is adjusting our services and offerings to better meet the needs of the Baby Boomer generation. While ADP Payroll Solutions reports that approximately two-thirds of this generation has already retired, they predict all of them will be retired within the next ten years. While retirement doesn’t equate to the need for aging services, it does cause many to stop and better plan for their health and future.
At Parker, we are moving in a direction to better meet the needs and wants of this generation and the generations coming after. One way is by using technology to support and enable people to stay healthy and engaged at home. Also, bringing services and programs to people at home will enable them to live and age in place, as most of us want to do.
Regardless of which programs, services, or technologies people may use to maintain or enhance their quality of life, this generation will be well-informed and savvy about their needs – and just as important what they want!
At Parker we’re thinking about the future with optimism and limitless possibility. What will aging look like for you in 2030?
