Caretakers-The Best Retirement Job Ever

Are You Able to Relate to This?

You search online for what retirement jobs may be available and more often than not you fail to qualify by being too old or under-qualified.

You land an interview and you never hear from them again. You know your age is throwing you a curve. So what are you going to do?

Chances are, you are long past the age to upgrade to a new skill. So now, where does that leave you? You still need money and your monthly income still comes up short of the total you need to balance your bank account.

Caretakers-The Best Retirement Job Ever is a book my wife and I wrote afterworking as Caretakers for over 20 years in the vancouver area of British Columbia. It was the most fruitful and enjoyable work we ever had done. We met hundreds of wonderful people along the way and made a financially rewarding living at the age when most people of our ages were long retired. The truth was that we did not have pensions enough to retire. Luckily being caretakers was the answer to our prayers.

Will you have enough income when you retire?

If not, what will you do? Where will the extra dollars come from? Are you ready to retire now? Or will retirement come when your company says so. The time to do something about your retirement is now, not when you are told the company is cutting staff. Today more than ever we must be proactive. If you find yourself suddenly are out of work, finding gainful employment will be that much harder. Perhaps you feel that your retirement income will be adequate, but a pension that is indexed more often than not cannot keep up with inflation and you discover your pension appears to be unable to cover all of your costs of living.

We Are All Getting On

Every day you awake to face the world you are one day older. One day away from that age of 50, 55, 60, or 75 when you are going to need more money each month.

This was the position we found ourselves in when the opportunity hit us like a ton of bricks! Our career as caretakers became our road to stability. Here is our story …

We both arrived on this planet in the middle of the Great Depression. I grew up in a small coal mining town in Nova Scotia and my wife, Irma, on a farm in New Brunswick. Irma was one of 12 children in the French area of the province where her father and mother scratched a living from the soil. They were hard workers but future prospects were not great. Irma first left home at the ripe, old age of 14 to work as a housekeeper, probably a sign of things to come.

My dad owned a small jewelry store where he earned a living repairing watches and clocks and tending to the needs and wishes of his customers. I had four siblings and my mom and dad provided for us well. I loved anything mechanical and left school at 15 to learn my trade with my dad as a jeweler/watchmaker. At 18, I left to join the Navy and see the world as life in the small town was not moving ahead.

While I sailed the ports of the world for a few years, Irma moved along in life finally working at Sears in Halifax, Nova Scotia where we then met and fell in love — which brings us to the next chapter in Caretakers-The Best Retirement Job Ever. A good friend of mine literally dragged me along as he had a real problem with “three’s a crowd”.

Be sure to read on as we explain how we discovered the wonderful world of Caretakers.

Jobs After Retirement

12,000 SEARS longtime employees lose their jobs.

SEARS to close 130 stores across Canada by December 2017 following the recent Target pull- out of 100 stores. Pearson to axe 3,000 jobs across USA. WILKO to cut 4,000 JOBS in UK. Every day we wake up to these kinds of headlines.

It almost seems that no job is safe these days. Ask yourself this question, AM I GOING TO BE NEXT?

If you are 50 or older you may now have a huge problem. Age discrimination is everywhere. Possibly a would-be employer will opt for a younger employee. The closer you are to 60, the harder it will be to find a job after retirement.

Cleaning Ceilings

My wife and I were 57 in 1993 and we needed jobs in the worst way. We were eight years from our old-age pensions. Our 12-year-old vehicle was on its last legs. We had invested nearly every penny of our savings on the purchase of a machine to clean ceilings and walls but we lived in Canada’s north where it was so cold that residents waited until a far-off spring to begin housecleaning. The questions we asked ourselves were: What are we going to do? How will we pay to put food on the table? How will we put gas in the vehicle?

Luckily, we found the world of Caretakers.

We didn’t know what the career, Caretakers, was but soon found out that caretakers is another word for apartment managers, condo managers and resident managers, and to us, that meant jobs after retirement!

We were trained on our first job and within a year we were earning $47,000 Including these benefits:
  • Dental care
  • Eyeglass care
  • Great salary
  • Work from home
  • Cell phones
  • Cable TV
  • Extremely reduced rent on a great apartment
  • Free parking
  • Vacations and 11 stat holidays
  • Free hydro

We were in seventh heaven. Best of all, the older we were was an asset. We soon found our co-workers were mostly 60, 70, and yes, 80 years of age!

We worked in the business for many years until a health problem occurred and caused me to retire — I was 77 at the time! Our boss didn’t want us to retire and offered to have a temp worker relieve us while I recuperated. We wanted to travel afterwards so we declined his generous offer and retired.

Our book, Caretakers, is meant to answer all the questions you may have if you are looking for the best job after retirement available today.
