Expect to see savvy entrepreneurs focus on several wide-open targets:
» Creating longevity centers that emphasize practices, services and approaches to aging that bring mind, spirit and physical health into a single focus.
» Whole-health healers, who develop anti-fad fitness and nutrition programs to emphasize holistic-health approaches, will enjoy success.
» Community gathering places — from bars and restaurants to community squares and centers — will increasingly promote activities and events that support Artful Aging.
» Real estate interests in small cities with arts communities, easy access to services, neighborhood shopping, mass transportation and appropriate spaces for aging adults will become more popular. The decades-old retirement-community model is less appealing. Smaller spaces in dynamic communities with activities near your front door will increase in number and variety.
