The new career as a caregiver.
I hope that these blog posts will encourage any boomer who is struggling to find a road map. If you read some of my first blog posts, you will see that I was pretty down. I have decided with some found energy to reinvent my final act for a living. After assessment of all the particulars, I settled on caregiving. Was hired by a local facility and started training. The day of training I was asked to sit for a client the following Monday, it was to be a 12 hour shift. I accepted the duty and enjoyed it very much. I now have my Red Cross CPR/First Aide/AED certificate. I have sitting on my desk 4 CD’s I ordered “Savvy Care Giver”. The information pertains to caring for clients with dementia or Alzheimer’s. The facility of my employment offers further training.
Now, granted, I am not making a ton of money, but I have an objective here and anytime you start on anything new, you start at the bottom.
I have my new fitness membership as of January 17th and I am on day three of my 21 day diet detox (over seen by a nurse practitioner). My strides are getting longer and stronger. Remember, that without your health all the money in the world will not matter. Inspired by this site http://mvdietdetox.com/
I am reaching out from under my rock and headed up, how about you?
