Canadian baby boomers now range in age from their mid-40s to
mid-60s. This confident and rebellious generation has broken new
ground at every stage of life; late middle-age and retirement will
be no different.
Most boomers are healthier than their grandparents could have
hoped to be at the same age. Some have made the pursuit of
physical, mental, and spiritual health an all-consuming occupation.
They''re having a great time and intend to experience the next 30
years not as a decline into infirmity, but as the satisfying second
half of their adult lives.
Stayin'' Alive will look into the future and speculate
what the aging of the boomers will mean for public policy, consumer
marketing, the world of work, investment, philanthropy, tourism,
retirement living (here and abroad), health care, and the rituals
associated with death.
