Remaining active as you age is an important part of seniors’ physical and emotional health. After retirement many people look for ways to remain active through part-time work or volunteer opportunities. Seniors bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the work force, and many are still looking for ways to contribute their skill sets or even develop new skill sets. There are many great work opportunities to explore after retirement, but here are three reasons why you should consider becoming a caregiver.
1. Enjoyable Work Environment. For those who want to continue to work on a part-time basis after retirement, work environment is an important consideration. Working as a companion caregiver your main job responsibility is to provide personal and social interaction. Your tasks would include conversation, meal preparation, incidental transportation, calendar and appointment management, and encouraging social engagement.
2. Flexible Schedule. You no longer have to work the 9-5 grind–manage your time and work when you want. Working as a caregiver you have control over your schedule, you can pick and choose the schedule that works for you.
3. Extra Income. Supplement your social security and retirement funds with a job you love. Many caregiver opportunities are paid positions and are an enjoyable way to stay active and supplement your income at the same time.
