Redefining Retirement: from Home Instead Senior Care

Many people grow up, go to college, get a job, and dream for that day years from now when they can tell their boss goodbye and retire. Who doesn’t want to awaken to no alarm clock or stay up late on a weeknight watching movies? Today’s seniors are finding that retirement planning looks different than what their parents saw. Instead of hanging up their career at sixty-five-years-old, men and women alike are staying put in the workforce for much longer. Those that go ahead and say goodbye to the office may find themselves bored and in need of human interaction. They are soon become “un-retired” – those who come out of retirement to go back to work.

The evolution of the post-retirement landscape is proving to be interesting. Taking a moment to evaluate your next steps can include volunteer opportunities or starting a second career. Many of the staff members at Home Instead Senior Care Hamilton have done just that by becoming a professional caregiver. They use their talents to provide vital in-home care for older adults.

Un-Retiring Is Possible

To help seniors find a new lease on life, Home Instead, Inc. created the UnRetire Yourself initiative. They discovered a couple of key factors that helped retirees decide to come out of retirement, including:

  1. Financial Stability: This is probably the biggest motivator for retirees.
  2. View of Retirement: For those that are nearing retirement, there is an idealistic view of new challenges and fulfillment. For those that have unretired, they have a realistic view of finding satisfaction in the workplace.

More than half of each group will choose to change industries to find the right opportunities for meaningful work.

Deciding to come out of retirement can seem daunting. Questions may swirl in your head. Do you stay in your chosen field? Should you start a new career? Where can your skills benefit others the most? Do you need the income or would you be better suited to volunteer work? The options may seem almost endless and overwhelming.

You can rewrite your retirement with a little help to discover how you can mix your passions, skills, and experiences to find your fit in the workforce. Home Instead has developed a quiz to get you started. We also have a variety of resources to aid in getting yourself out of the house and into a position where you can make a difference.
