Generation Customer: Defined by Attitude, Not Age


I hate the idea of chopping our population into generations: the Greatest Generation, the baby boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, millennials and so on.

Romantic misconceptions are projected back in time; less-flattering misconceptions are projected forward, toward younger generations.

The U.S. is facing a retirement wave. Seventy-six million Baby Boomers are beginning to hit the 65-year-old mark. By 2025, the number of people between 65 and 85 will account for 16.6 percent of the total population. In the U.S., the elderly prefer aging in their own home, but it can be risky. Connectivity and technology advances are enabling more sophisticated devices and tools — including emergency response systems, medication management, activity sensors, and location-awareness — to help consumers and caretakers manage risks at home.
