SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Amava announces the launch of its unified platform connecting a new generation of retirees and empty-nesters with select socially engaging experiences, life stage-focused services and each other. Amava empowers individuals to make successful transitions to purposeful and engaged post-career, post-parenting lives — essential ingredients to health and longevity.
“We focus first on social engagement because, according to research, it can be more critical to wellness than genes, nutrition or fitness routines,” said Mark Silverman, CEO of Amava. “Of course, it’s typically where we get the most joy in life as well.”
More than 10,000 people a day in the US are leaving their full-time careers and today’s 70M+ Baby Boomers face distinct challenges as they navigate their 30+ post-career years. While independence and increased longevity promise new horizons, they also require additional demands--from new connections to financial stability to demands for insurance, caregiving, financial management, living accommodations, health and wellness. Though they control over $60 trillion in net assets, more than half of Boomers will need to augment their retirement savings with additional income to maintain their lifestyles. Amava presents options to help members navigate this new phase.
