Three aspects on futures of living for senior citizen
September 09, 2020
The senior citizen or aged over 60 years old may consider the different criteria of being ‘’old”. Based on the research, the combination of physical, mental and emotional healths will lead to a sense of purpose in life which will slow some aspects of the aging process.
Let look into aspects of futures of living for senior citizen.
- AGE-IN-PLACE: A living community for senior citizens in the future should consider an integration on a concept of “Age-in-place” or to be at homes or the community rather than the separated nursing home with a round-the-clock caring system. This helps to ensure the combination of physical, mental and emotional healths.
- Learn @ Hybrid university: Gerontolescence or the second adolescence looks for more flexibility in their education. Hybrid university still offers the traditional in-person instruction as well as the on demand online course. Senior citizens can choose to attend class to re-skill or upskill for their work.
- Leisure time @ Mindfulness in nature: As the powerful and adaptive activity, the regular meditation in nature comes with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional health benefits for the seniors.
Future implication: How the future workplace will look like if there will be 4 generations working together?
