The article describes aging process along with the profession of certified financial planner. The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) wants to address issues of concern to boomers. Joyce Winslow, spokesperson for AARP, rags the fifties decade of life as a period of "abnormal turbulence...divorce, remarriage, empty nesting, menopause and midlife crisis, retirement, starting over as a result of corporate downsizing, and surviving breast cancer or prostate cancer. "Fiscal, physical, and mental" fitness will become interlinked as a holistic concept to a greater extent than today. Planners who are also good communicators may form alliances with providers of health, educational, and lifestyle enhancement services and products to deliver information to a burgeoning marker of active oldsters. According to Taipan Report: "Healthier diets and better medical care have nearly doubled the average life expectancy in America in the last 100 years. But even bigger breakthroughs are coming in the field of genetics, as scientists unravel genetic codes that program every aspect of a human being from eye color to sex. By manipulating a number of genes, scientists will soon be able to counteract the aging process."
