Retirees: Caretaker Opportunities for a new lifestyle!
by Wendy, www.retirement-online.com
Hey Retiree! Do you know that many larger homes, ranches, parks, farms etc. hire caretakers for their property? They do!
Do you know that many actually advertise for retired people? retired couples? Yeppers... they do!
Now I know many retirees don't want to move for various reasons, but if you are not one of those people, consider changing your lifestyle for a few years and find the Adventure of a Lifetime!
These caretaker positions come in many forms, like house sitters, ranch hands, security, handyman, personal assistant... and oodles more. You might choose to look only at caretaker positions in your current state, or try living in a new state, or heck -- even internationally.
You obviously need to be physically fit for most caretaker roles, but there are quite a variety that pop up every month and all year long!
This might be a great idea for low-income retirees too. You get free living arrangements in exchange for your services.
The Caretaker Gazette
has been published for 35 years. Get a one year subscription and start reading each email they send, or wait for the paper issue, for opportunities that interest you. If you accept a caretaker role, let us know here. We'd love to hear your story!
Here is the December 2015 issue... the most recent issue at the time of this post. There are years of sample issues out there, so that you can verify for yourself that this is no hit and run newsletter... they are here to stay.
p.s. Somewhere on this site a couple left their story as they moved into caretaker positions... it was the perfect retirement situation for them and I hope someone out there finds a new adventure in life too!
