Retirement care

Retirement care is among the vaguest types of senior care. The only distinguishing feature of retirement care is that it's usually much more low-key compared to other senior care, such as respite care, hospice care, or other assisted living resources.

Retirement home jobs and Lifestyle Strategies

Stay Active, but Remove Stressors:

That said, you also can't do everything you have planned for your retirement in the first week or month. Hiring an aide or two for your retirement care can allow you to exercise in your home gym or go for a nature hike, while your aide wades through the stress-filled foot traffic at the grocery store. This sort of stress-free activity may sound almost indulgent at first, but it is your retirement, you've earned it.

Trim, but Don't Eliminate, Active Hobbies:

On a similar note, you should evaluate your weekly chores for their inherent enjoyment. Maybe you love to tend your garden, but driving the lawn or pushing mower around the yard always felt like work. You can hire a lawn care company to complete only those tasks you no longer feel like tackling. You can have your aide do the dishes, while you continue to dust and vacuum. Often, the most effective retirement plans involve achieving a balance that pushes you to retain your mobility without shredding your arteries from stress-induced cortisol secretion.

Plan for the Future:

Planning for your future retirement care should include deepening your understanding of your ability to co-exist with hired home health aides. You should also consider a pros and cons list of moving into an assisted living retirement village vs. hiring round-the-clock home health care services for your later retirement years.

Hire a Financial Planner:

One of the most common mistakes with retirement-- especially among men according to statistical data-- is to manage your own finances. You need to find someone you can trust and you need to communicate the level and manage of financial risk you're willing to assume, but if you have the funds to retire, you should no longer need to worry about money everyday of your life. Stay proactive, review your statements diligently, and have meetings with your financial planner, but you should think twice before you manage your retirement portfolio by yourself.
