Throughout history, the “elders” of a family or community have been valuable members of society because of their life experience and ability to share their knowledge and skills with younger members of the group.
Fortunately, Americans are living longer, healthier lives, and a plethora of opportunities await them, to share what they have spent their lives learning, practicing, or observing.
As families have become more transient in their careers, one of the trends includes Active Adults relocating to live closer to their grandchildren and adult children, affording them the opportunity to take care of children while their parents work, or care for an elderly or infirm family member.
Contributing also takes place among groups of friends, in neighborhoods, or within the larger community. These types of contributions may include planning a vacation with friends from high school or college, organizing a class reunion, or maintaining a regular gathering – or group on social media – to ensure friends are able to keep in touch with one another.
Neighborhood supper clubs, garden clubs, book clubs, or watch parties for sporting events or movies require the skills of someone who is knowledgeable about the topic, and has a penchant for organizing.
And the wealth of experience and knowledge Active Adults have amassed over their careers and volunteer participation is sought after by community organizations and non-profits, including:
At Windsong, the contributions of Active Adults are visible every day, as home buyers with similar life stage experiences share their knowledge to forge friendships, create and maintain courtyard gardens, and become vital members of their local communities.
