The New Longevity

Living with purpose

Those of us who are living into our 70s, 80s, and 90s have been given a gift — a bonus of 20 or more years of life. At 65, we can expect to live into our middle 80s, and today’s newborns into their 90s.

This longevity is a precious opportunity to enrich our lives, improve our communities and enhance the welfare of future generations. At The Village Chicago, the potential for extraordinary quality of life and well-being are what inspire everything. Through learning, exploring, helping, and engaging, members remain connected to each other, to resources and support ,and are part of a vital, caring community.

“As the longevity revolution unfolds…Villages will become one of the distinctive social inventions of our time.”(1)
