Philosophy

Welcome to Olderhood -Your Third Journey Awaits.

lanewayThe Third Journey is based on the premise that there are no longer just two phases of life (Childhood and Adulthood) – there is a third vital phase which we call “Olderhood”. Today’s retirees are not old, they are simply “older”. Now that they are free from the burden of work, they have the opportunity to experience a fulfilling life – but only if they make a realistic plan regarding how they are going to spend their time.

In America alone, 10,000 Baby Boomers retire every day. Retirees will soon become the largest demographic sector of the population and is presently the fastest-growing segment. Yet their needs and challenges are also the most misunderstood. While health, financial and pension planning advice are readily available, practical common sense lifestyle guidance to support and develop this new active aging process has been largely unavailable.

Until now.

Drawing on three years of data and feedback provided by the 70,000 worldwide fans who follow and interact with The Olderhood Group on our various online platforms, The Third Journey focuses on a variety of physical, emotional, financial and psychological issues the typical retiree is likely to face, and challenges the reader to consider their own motivations in the decisions that they make, while making practical suggestions as to how to employ creativity and ingenuity to overcome obstacles and personal fears. Our practical and down-to-earth approach to difficult subjects enables our clients to address everything from downsizing and dealing with relatives, to care giving, overcoming grief and loneliness, living on a fixed income, keeping busy, dating and elder abuse, and so much more.  

Our coaching services will change how you think about growing older and provide you with the tools to plan a fulfilling and enjoyable retirement life.
