Breaking the senior stereotype

A whopping 40% of home owners living at Vision by Halcyon are breaking senior stereotypes by working beyond the traditional retirement age.

The figure aligns with demographer Bernard Salt’s findings that the number of 63-year-olds in the Queensland workforce jumped from 32% to 48% in the decade to 2011.

His 2014 report, ‘Reimagining the Great Australian Retirement Lifestyle,’ also found growing workforce retention for the broader 58 to 68 year old demographic.

Home owner Elaine Hulme, 68, is a director of an industrial earthmoving equipment company. Mrs Hulme, who has held the position for more than 34 years, believes having strong career goals is the key to a long and happy life.

“My father raised me to understand that work is such an essential part of life,” she said. “I was taught that one should enjoy their work – the social element of it is especially rewarding”.

“I have always loved my job because it interests me, it’s engaging and hands-on”.

Her husband Peter worked in a variety of jobs until he retired at 72, well past the average age of retirement. Mr Hulme said he did not like to sit around, preferring to be a socially active member of society.

“I’ve been a volunteer at Coomera Police Station for a while now – it keeps me engaged in the community,” he said. “Both Elaine and I are very volunteer-minded and we enjoy giving back”.

The Hulmes previously lived at Halcyon Waters for six and a half years and said they would never move away from Halcyon. “The Halcyon concept has appealed to our lifestyle needs since day one,” Mrs Hulme said. “We couldn’t imagine life outside of Halcyon. It’s perfectly aligned with the way we want to live our senior years”.

In his report, Mr Salt said the way Australians viewed life beyond 55 was changing including the type of accommodation seniors wanted.

“We know that the first decade or so beyond 55 involves some sort of work,” he said. “This might be a response to the global financial crisis or it may be a reflection of changes to the nature of work; less physical labour, more intellectual effort”.

Mr Salt’s research indicates a trend towards lifestyle communities like Vision by Halcyon. Nowadays it’s all about having somewhere secure to lock and leave, travel, health, volunteer work and in many cases staying active in the workforce.
