United Nations, World Population Prospects, Revision 2013; http://esa.un.org/unpd/wpp/index.htm
ThriveOn was founded to fill a growing need driven by our changing demographics. According to a 2013 United Nations’ report, while total population will continue to grow in the US and globally, the largest percentage increase by far is in the 65+ segment. Between 2010 and 2050, this group is expected to increase by 111% in the US and 181% globally. While the numbers speak for themselves, the more personal aspects of helping parents, grandparents or other loved ones to successfully navigate this phase of life compelled us to create ThriveOn. Simply put, we want more and better options for our loved ones (and ourselves) to lead a fulfilling and self-determined life after their (our) mainstream careers and/or childrearing.
