We have added 20 years of life expectancy, just since 1950 and are adding 1 month for every year that goes by.  This “longevity bonus” presents us with many opportunities as well as challenges.  This presentation will address such challenges as planning for health and healthcare in retirement, the coming caregiving crisis, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s Disease as well as the opportunity that longevity presents for us to pursue our calling in the form of work in retirement.
