Finding a job where you feel like you’ll be able to stay for years is getting harder to find. Record numbers of people have been laid off or had their jobs eliminated in the past year, and many of them are looking for something they feel they didn’t have with their last career- job security. People who consider caregiving as their career choice mention it being rewarding and providing job security. However, is this for you?
Increasing Numbers of People Need Professional Caregivers
The good news is that opportunities abound for those that want to work with seniors, which we’ll define as age 65 or older. Some interesting statistics about our aging population:
- 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day
- The 65 and older population grew by over 34% during the past decade
- In 2019 about 16.5% of the population was 65 or older and is expected to reach 22% by 2050
Interesting facts, indeed. And here’s one more: there are more than 55 million residents in the U.S. over age 65.
What does that mean for you? The need for caregivers is growing right along with the aging population, which provides professional caregivers with unparalleled opportunity and job security.
