Why is there a drastic difference in people’s perception vs reality?

  • People are in denial over aging and what comes along with It.
  • Consumers are optimistic in our youth-oriented culture. Why worry now anyway?
  • People equate aging and long term care with death and defeat.
  • The reality of aging is not a powerful enough motivator until it hits close to home.
