As you age, to maintain your independence, one excellent method is through working a part-time job. It can help you stay active, vital, and provide a little extra spending money. Additionally, you’ll receive a sense of accomplishment and engage in valuable social interaction. Particularly for those with disabilities, however, this can be challenging. Fortunately, there are a number of part-time jobs for disabled elderly that can prove to be rewarding.
Remaining in the Workforce
Let’s look at some labor statistics for older adults.
For people in the United States who are 55 years of age or older, approximately 40% are either looking for work or still actively engaged in work (according to BLS – Bureau of Labor Statistics). As baby boomers start to age and individuals hit 65+, working senior percentages are expected to increase. Particularly with service options and today’s technology, work for who would ordinarily be retirement age individuals is becoming more accessible.
Now, let’s check out some options for jobs.
You can sharpen your existing skills and help someone else learn new ones by being a tutor. You’ll learn how to troubleshoot problems and communicate effectively and clearly, as well as experience different audiences who may require various approaches.
Babysitting for children or pet sitting can both be done during daytime hours if you don’t want to be away in the evening. Set your own rates and your own schedule. If you have problems with your back or other issues, you simply need to tailor your job to your needs. Example: No Lifting or Only Small Animals, etc.
You may choose to assist women in finding their own personal style if your passion is fashion. Help clients try out new styles and trends, all from your laptop at home. You get to help others feel and look beautiful, which can be confidence-boosting for both of you.
When most people see the word “freelance”, they think of a writer. While writers can do freelance work, there are actually all sorts of jobs that are workable in a freelance manner. Language translation, finance, bookkeeping, design, and marketing are several others. What’s more, you can work from home.
As long as you are physically capable, dog walking is a great way to make a little extra money. People with pets, who work away from home, frequently need someone to tend to their pets around mid-day or so. Dogs, in particular, need walking. You can schedule something like this around your own abilities and timeline. It’s a good way to get some exercise, you get to spend time with an adorable companion, and you get a bit of fresh air.
