How the Retirement Population has changed over the last 20 years


Retirement today is a whole new phase in Life. It brings with it new and different needs and changes in lifestyles. Prior to the mid-1980s, older American men have been a constantly declining percentage of the total labor force. This reflected Americans' increased wealth which many male members of the labor force chose to "spend" on earlier retirement. In 1950, 72 percent of men aged 65 were still in the labor force while by 1985, this had dropped to 30 percent.

In the mid-1980s these long-term trends have stopped, and partially reversed themselves. Between 1985 and 2004, the active labor participation rates for men increased by 10 percent among 62 year-olds, 24 percent among 65 year-olds and by nearly 50 percent among 70 year-olds.

For older women, the story is similar. Between the mid-1960s and the mid-1980s, their workforce participation rates were flat. But since the mid-1980s, active labor participation rates for older women have increased dramatically and continue to rise today. Many more older men and women are working today than trends prior to 1985 would have predicted.


Retirement changes your Expectations and Demand on Life


Retirement is no longer a short period towards the end of your life. You might live for another 25-40 years or longer. Retirement is simply a new and different phase in your life. You should embrace it to the fullest and realize the potential it provides you. Partially by necessity, but also, often by choice, your selection of what you want from life and how you can get it, will change as you enter retirement. This is not limited to how and what you consume, be it food clothing, finance, leisure, travel, health care, housing and many other things. It goes a lot further than that. Personal enjoyment and generally, "what makes you tick" are things that change.
Your expectations change, and probably your set of values also changes. What was important when you are 20, may suddenly peripheral to you life when you are 65. Your expectations of life will not be lower, but they will change!

An Aging Population results in New Career Opportunities in Health Care Jobs


* * The rapidly expanding retirement population, produces new demands on health care professionals.
Because of the general shortage of nurses and to keep costs at reasonable levels, many jobs that used to be performed by LPN's are now open to Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA's). A short certification program of 6 to 12 weeks trains them to supports the nurses, and perform basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients. They also assist nurses with medical equipment, and checking patient vital signs. CNAs improve the quality of life of retired people needing care, by giving them important social and emotional support, as well as providing vital information on the retirees conditions to nurses. If you are interested in a growing and exciting career opportunity and want to care for others, you can find information here out about CNA training, working conditions and CNA salaries.
