the Retirement Population has changed over the last 20
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.
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.
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 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.
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!

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).

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

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.
