Our Work / Boomers

Boomers is about preparing for your later years to give them meaning, purpose and joy.

With such a huge demographic shift, encouraging people to plan for their wellbeing in retirement (or when easing off the work pedal a little) as early as possible, can help make this often difficult life transition much easier.

Like financial planning for retirement, wellbeing planning works better the sooner it starts. However, we also recognise when you’re in your 50s and younger, old age can still seem a long way away. As some wit once said “old age is always 15 years older than I am”.

Boomers is for everyone with an interest in ageing positively. It is aligned with the Mental Health Foundation’s Five Ways to Wellbeing and also with the government’s Positive Ageing Strategy, which aims for older New Zealanders to be healthy, independent, connected and respected.
