No one can tell what the future holds but there are current trends that we can look at to predict what the world might look in a few decades time. Take older people, for example, can we say for sure that over 60s in 2050 will behave in the same way that our current generation of seniors do? It seems very unlikely, especially considering the differences in tastes, circumstances, and attitudes between millennials and baby boomers. But what could millennials look like when they eventually reach their golden years?
Well, Age UK Mobility have looked to tackle this question exactly by putting together an extensive piece that delves into what we can expect from the future generation of over 60s. They have broken down this fascinating topic into five key areas – technology, fashion, entertainment, health, and values – in a valiant attempt to predict how future over 60s might behave. They have even created a handy infographic to go along with the piece, replete with stats, facts, and predictions for the future. How will future over 60s travel? What will they do for entertainment? What will be the issues that are important to them? It’s pretty cool and this is certainly a subject that is fun to think about.
