Want insight into the teen or tween mind? Look no further than Facebook or Twitter. For the slightly older demographic, there are blogs and personal websites and other longer-form digital journals and diaries. But what about the demographic of Americans with the widest range of experience, who have the most and the best stories to tell and the benefit of a lifetime of context and perspective? Where can we find their opinions?
It was this curiosity, this burning question of what centenarians have to say about their life experiences, that fueled Holiday’s nationwide phone survey of residents who were 100-years-old or older, and inspired 100 Years of Wisdom, a research report that reveals the thoughts, opinions, and words of wisdom from American centenarians on hot-button issues from marriage and politics to personal finance and today’s youth.
The survey findings identify important perspectives on the country’s current direction, and they provide valuable advice on family and marriage, habits for longevity, personal finance, and the keys to happiness.
The survey, which was conducted across all Holiday communities, had 68 participants, all of whom were 100 years old or older. The survey’s goal was to profile the specific sub-set of Holiday Retirement residents that have reached or surpassed the 100-year age mark to showcase their lives and to extract their insights on the state of the world today.
