Having a Purpose is Ageless
The folks at MetLife really churn out some great research! The other day I learned that they recently released a study “How Purpose is Recession-Proof and Age-Proof” which is a follow up to last years research “Discovering What Matters” which I mentioned back in March 09 during my first move to a senior living community.
You can read the details of both of these research projects at their website. For me this report is simply a reminder that above all else having purpose is the most important element at all ages.
It might seem like common sense, but I feel that this often escapes many of us in the senior living and care giving world. I recently interviewed a 99 year old resident in a senior living community who shared a wonderfully unique story of purpose that he feels has “kept him alive”. I hope you enjoy it!
