Change the national mindset from one that is pervasively negative about people 50 and older (50+) to one that is positive and recognizes the ability of multiple millions of people 50+ to remain actively engaged for their own benefit, the benefit of family and friends, and for the country's economic development.
Integrate people 50+ more effectively into the economic and social fabric of America. There are nearly 112 million people in the U.S. who are 50+, one-third of the total population. They own or control more than 70% of the country's total accumulated private wealth and account for more than 60% of the total annual consumer spending. Multiple millions of them are sitting on the sidelines and relying on the entitlement programs but are qualified and ready to continue adding value in a variety of ways that include but extend far beyond working for pay.
Stimulate people 50+ to recognize that active aging will enhance the quality of their lives, result in greater satisfaction with life and better health, and will add four-five years to their lives.
Many of these people have what we call DoubleESP™, an acronym we coined and trademarked for Experience, Expertise, Seasoned judgment and Proven performance. The mission of Enrich Life Over 50 (ELO50) is to stimulate the active engagement of people 50+ in a broad range of activities (a representative sample is listed on the Active Engagement page) that would add value to their lives and also contribute to the larger world.
ELO50 will provide members with four meetings per year that are focused on the Seven Pillars of Aging Successfully™ and related topics, participation in special-interest groups that meet several times each year on topics selected by the members, and the opportunity to build relationships with like-minded people 50+ in their geographic area and beyond.Learn More
