Age Is Just A Number

Today’s elderly generation may say they’ve seen it all but our changing and evolving world certainly endorses what our greatest generation has seen.

When it comes to embracing this new world dominated by social media, the concept that age is just a number is important. Many seniors have embraced the demands of this new form of communication by using social media to stay connected with family, friends, and each other.

It may be hard to believe this but 64% of Americans over the age of 50 and 37% over the age of 65 use social media regularly.

As the baby boomer generation (and all of us, Elder Care Managers, at Aging at 5280 are in that category) hits their senior years, we are seeing more and more blogs speaking to “us.” So, this month we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorite blogs and hope that you find encouraging and positive thoughts on aging as we have. We are going out on a limb here and saying that these are must follow. While reading, keep in mind, that mindset is key because age is just a number.

The Roaming Boomers

Based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, they share their luxury trips and travel tips. David and Carol Porter are The Roaming Boomers and launched the blog to inspire seniors to see the world. From the perfect picnic in Paris to Galapagos Islands and beyond, this blog will certainly inspire you to travel and see more of the world. Thanks to social media, we can do just that.
