Baby Boomers

Who Are the Baby Boomers?

Everyone has heard of the Baby Boomers – the first generation to really change the world around them. Marketing professionals have studied them, companies have been founded (and destroyed) because of them. The Baby Boomer influence has reinvented industries for decades, as companies consistently seek to gain their favor. Now, as the Boomers plow toward retirement, health care companies and senior living communities are changing the way they do business in order to meet the high expectations of the Boomers.

One Thing is Certain

The Boomers will continue to change the world until they leave it. But, this power isn’t gained without a few negative stereotypes. Are Boomers really selfish? Do they really dislike other generations? Are they set in their ways and inflexible?



Your voice matters. Your story is important. But just as vital as your story is the story of others. Listening to others is how we are able to change, reflect, and encourage.
