If you are over 65 years of age, you are not alone. The Washington Post reported recently that some 17% of people living in the United States, or more than one in six, were 65 or older in 2020, according to a report from the Administration on Aging.

That percentage represents 55.7 million people, an increase of 15.2 million, or 38% of people 65 and above, since 2010, compared with just 2% growth in the under 65 population. The figure also reflects a consistent increase in the nation’s older population since 1900, when there were 3.1 million Americans 65 and older, or 4% of the population.

These days, due to medical advancements, improved surgeries and medication, as well as wellness and nutrition initiatives, we have more Centenarians than ever before. We are now able to welcome great grandchildren into the world and attend graduations and weddings of loved ones from younger generations. This allows us to mentor as never before and share family history that provides a sense of belonging and continuity. Sharing time and love is more important than any material gifts we give. Enjoy this treasured time, which was not granted to our ancestors, and live life to the fullest with our friends and loved ones!
