Women Over 50: Finding Work
Far too many of my over 50 friends are finding it hard to find work after being laid off. I have noticed an area where jobs are growing - and that is in assisting families and seniors with errands, driving them to medical appts and other personal services (note: this is not senior home health care which often requires medical  training). This NY Times article discusses some of these jobs, especially those that focus on helping the 70-80 year old baby boomers. Before this year, working as an independent contractor often meant losing out on health care but thank God for the Affordable Care Act as it at least removes the pre-existing condition exclusion.
