Where You Live Matters – The Critical Role of Place in the Second Half of Life

Leadership  |  April 26, 2022

Where you live is one of the most significant factors in thriving over a long life. “Place” is more than the four walls you call home; it also encompasses your neighborhood, metropolitan area, region of the country, and even the people who surround you.

Choosing the right place influences our opportunities for purpose, social connections, physical well-being and much more.

On Monday, April 25th, CLC-Cappella President and CEO Jill-Vitale Aussem was joined by two expert authors for a thoughtful Facebook Live discussion with well-researched insights and tips on fostering true community, seeking happiness with meaning and purpose, and making the second half of your life the best half of your life.

Sara Zeff Geber, PhD and Author of Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers

"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
