Youthful Retirement

Retirement-related spaces and services prioritize "youthful" activities

Implications - Battling stereotypes and beliefs about how people can and do age, retirement spaces and services are increasingly catering to more "youthful" entertainment activities, whether those are theme parks or retirement homes with bars. Prioritizing the "you're only as young as you feel" mantra, such offerings go against the often self-fulfilling nature of beliefs around how to "appropriately" age.
