Bridging The Generation Gap – How Society Has Evolved

Are we having children later in life now as compared to before?

Why are divorce rates at an all time high?

And we how have the norms and values of society changed from the baby boomers to the millenials.

There’s been a huge shift in culture and everyday life from the baby bloomer generation to the millennial generation – this isn’t just an opinion but fact! However, the question is – are these changes necessarily for the good? This article looks at what has changed between the generations and whether our lives are different as a result.

I think we can all agree that whatever circles we engage with, you must have heard the expression ‘times have changed’…. This can be in reference to many situations, but when it comes to comparing and contrasting generation habits – this expression has never been more pertinent. And if you are of the baby boomer generation, you’ve seen society change and shaped differently overtime. So when it comes to everyday life and choices, have we lost our way? Or are we simply becoming smarter in the way we approach life?

Bridging The Generation Gap

With divorce rates at an all time high, and couples choosing to have kids later in life or not even at all, there have been some fundamental shifts in the way we do things now, as compared to years gone by.

The baby bloomer generation commenced in 1946 where there were 3.4 million babies born in that year alone! This trend continued till 1964, but by then, there were almost 77 million ‘baby boomers’ across the USA – and at the time, they made up almost 40% of the population.

There are many theories that exist as to why this baby boom emerged but the overriding feeling was that after the war, people were more optimistic about the future and so looked forward to having and raising children in a more prosperous time.

Baby Bloomers Enjoying Life

If we fast forward the clock to the modern day, the trend is completely the opposite, and couples are more inclined to have children later in life or not even at all! Could this be because we are far less optimistic about the future? And as a result, is this a sign of the times we live in? In the baby bloomer generation, marriage and children were what people aspired to obtain in life. But have our expectations grown? Or are we choosing to break the mould?

Here are some of the major cultural changes that have changed since the baby bloomer era….

Women having kids later in life:   

Latest figures show that the average age for first time mothers is 26 or older. This is much later than the baby bloomer age and really puts into perspective that women are indeed willing to wait for the right moment to have children… but why the wait? Many women state that it is expensive in the modern day to have and raise children. And would prefer to do so once their careers are stable.

In the baby boomer era, women were encouraged to come out of working life in exchange for raising their children and focusing on family life, but this was in a time where the cost of living was lower and it was feasible to live a comfortable life from one income provider.

Divorce rates are much higher in the modern era:

With divorce rates at an all time high, the latest trends suggest that divorce rates have plummeted severely since the 1960s. Again, in the baby boomer era, divorce rates were very low which gives more of an insight into the thought process back then. And there will be many debates as to why divorce rates have increased, but the fact remains that when you talk about a shift in culture and bridging the generation gap, you cant help but talk about why divorce rates are much higher within this generation.

Cost of living is much higher:

As we alluded to before, the cost of living between the two generations has significantly increased, and most likely could be one of the underlying reasons as to why our thinking has changed. With increased pressures of everyday life, people may not have the expendable income they once had. And it makes people think twice about having children.

As society has gone through many changes over the past 50 years, its brought about an air of change that may not necessarily have changed for the worse. Things are moving at a faster pace now and the conventions that existed before are slowly not becoming the norm for people in this day and age. Families, marriage and kids were the desired goal for many people of the baby boomer generation. However, in the modern day, it hasn’t become much of a priority. With divorce rates going through the roof, are we learning from the mistakes of society and avoiding them? Or are we simply losing our way with traditional values? Whatever the answer maybe, things have certainly changed – for better or for worse, you decide!

The Elms is an independent retirement village, for those who seek to live in a retirement community aimed at those of 50 years or older. If you’d like to learn more about The Elms, feel free to request a brochure below –

Ballroom Dancing

Grab a partner and head onto the dance floor! Any form of dancing is fantastic exercise and fun for all involved. It might be that you used to ballroom dance many years ago, or you may not have done it all, but it’s a really fun form of exercise that you can engage with on a regular basis.

Exercise doesn’t have to be about pounding the weights and running all day on the treadmill, but more something that we can enjoy and not be intimidated by. This is especially true the more we age, as its vital that we look after ourselves to ensure we maintain our independence. The secret to maintaining a consistent approach to exercise is to find something you enjoy doing…. And keep doing it!

Lincoln Cathedral also benefits from having one of the only original four remaining Magna Carte documents in existence. It is the only one to bear the name of the city.

 

Lincoln Castle

While visiting Lincoln Cathedral, why not visit the magnificent Lincoln Castle at the same time. Located a short walk from the Cathedral they make the ideal pair of attractions.

Medieval Bishops Palace

So is one possible solution to downgrade the size of your existing home?

Many of our residents have done exactly this, and are now living comfortably within the confines of a retirement village. This is an excellent way to really invest in your future and free up equity.

With house prices at an all time high here in the UK, many people in general are downgrading the size of their home to save money. This is why there has been a boost in sales over the last decade for people choosing to purchase and live in a dedicated retirement village. Here at The Elms, we have over 339 properties that are classified as retirement properties, where people over the age of 50 can purchase a home, just as normal, but here you will be moving into a retirement community – where you will be surrounded by other people over the age of 50.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re retired or not, if your over 50, then you meet the requirements to purchase a retirement property here at The Elms.

But what can buying a retirement property achieve?

So whilst you think that life over 55 is quite a daunting prospect, here at The Elms we offer a viable solution for you to free up any equity you have on your existing home, and possibly even live mortgage free!

The Elms – Far From a Retirement Home!

Ever wondered what Retirement Home Living is all about? Well here at The Elms, we can’t really give you the answer to that! The simple answer as to why is because The Elms is not a retirement home! We are a dedicated retirement village – where over 50s can live independently and purchase a home just like any other. What makes us different is that we have simply set up a retirement village for people over 50 years old – which is far from the traditional retirement home philosophy!

And this is the story of how The Elms has come to be….

Back in the 1970’s, the Kinch Group acquired a portion of land in Lincolnshire with the vision of building homes on this plot to be sold independently. The vision was then refined, with the intent of making this space a dedicated retirement community, where homes are sold to those over 50 years old – not the traditional retirement home living type property, but an actual property that you completely own. And live independently through.

From the 80s to today!

And with this in mind… The Elms was born…

The idea was never to build a retirement home where senior people could simply see out the remaining years of their life. The plan was to build independent homes where those over 50 could purchase the homes and be amongst like-minded people. This is why the Torksey Lock area was chosen as the destination area, as it has easy access to the things that we need within everyday life, and is located in a peaceful Lincolnshire location.

Amazing transformation at the park

And this is why our properties are in such high demand…

At the moment, we are at capacity with our properties in terms of plots. So there is no space now to purchase any plots. However, properties do become readily available and you can also check local property sites to see which of the properties the residents have listed for sale. Click to view our Available Properties.

The Elms through the years

So why do people choose to move to a dedicated retirement area…

So lets confirm, we are not a retirement home and residents here at The Elms do not live the quote ‘retirement home living’ lifestyle.

When our residents moved here, it was with the intention to enjoy the more active years of their life. Not to simply let life slip them by. The concept of a dedicated retired area is not a new one.

However, it is one that is now quickly becoming an option for many people over 50 and retirees in general. As financially, this can be an excellent chance for you to free up some equity and really enjoy these stages of your life.

Retirement Loneliness: Are Retirement Villages The Answer to Combat Retirement Isolation?

The thought of Retirement Loneliness can be a very scary but realistic prospect for many. And lets face it; no one wants to live in a care home. But a novel concept that has been in the UK for many years now is gaining much traction. So are Park Homes and Retirement Villages and truly the better alternative to care homes?

Are dedicated Retirement Villages the answer to the retirement loneliness epidemic?

The idea of a dedicated retirement village was brought to the marketplace through the momentum it gained in the USA. And it’s widely becoming a popular choice for many over 50’s here in the UK, as it isn’t necessarily the elderly who can benefit from such places.

But lets think about the typical journey that people take to retirement in the first place. Well, having spent most of your life working, it seems as though people often look forward to the day they retire, as this can be the start of that path to freedom you dreamt of. However, many people are further saving their equity by investing in dedicated retirement properties….

But you maybe thinking well how do these dedicated retirement places combat retirement loneliness? Well, its often stated that people suffer from depression as a result of going from working all their lives, to then ultimately having time to yourself, and not knowing what to do with it.

It can be quite sobering when all those around you are getting on with their lives in a world that is rapidly changing and evolving. The good news is however, that you too can make a change for the better. And not even experience what retirement loneliness feels like.

The main thing that people struggle with is trying to find a routine to follow on a daily basis. It’s hard to go from working full time to then retiring and not having the same schedule or even an outline of a plan on a daily basis.

But how can retirement villages combat this?

Well, with a retirement village, you have the convenience of living as you normally would, but you would just be in a community of other people just like yourselves who are also retirees. The benefit of this is that you can instantly form friendships with like-minded people around you, and begin to fill your days with activities alongside your new friends.

Here at The Elms, we have created a fantastic retirement community all situated within rural Lincolnshire. Within our community, there is never a sense of Retirement Loneliness from our residents – as there is always something happening here.

And this is the key; if you find somewhere that takes away the feeling of isolation, then it definitely combats that lonely feeling. If you have kids or grandkids that have been to university away from home, then they too will find it strange at first, but they soon adapt. The same can be said for our residents, who at first are slightly taken back by the change, but they also soon adapt. Its never too late to start a new chapter in your life, and its not too late to combat that lonely feeling after retirement.
