When human life expectancy gets longer, we want it also to be happier. If we extend life expectancy without caring about the quality of life, what’s the point of living longer? Senior citizens are slowly losing the color of their lives. After retirement, people feel worthless and purposeless.

We welcome them to Gray On with us to pass on their knowledge, find their passion, and redefine their world.

American Association of Retired Persons or AARP is a non profit organization in the United states focusing on issues affecting those over the age of fifty. AARP was formed in 1958 by Ethel Percy Andrus, and Leonard Davis as an influential lobbying group in the United States that sells paid memberships, and markets insurances, and other services to its members.

When we think of health, we think of our body and physical health. Mental health is equally important to physical health and can impact our bodies. With the stigma around mental health, it is even more challenging to tell and educate older generations about mental health. What's the point of living longer when you are not happy?

With the Gray On campaign, we aim to find purpose after retirement and to age happily. We welcome them to Gray On with us to pass on their knowledge, find their passion, and redefine their world.
