Continuing to Work as a Senior with Vision Loss
A New Beginning
Are you over 50 or an otherwise anxious baby boomer? You're not alone. More than 35 million Americans are already over age 65. As baby boomers continue to age, that number is expected to double by the year 2035.*
What does this mean to you? It means that shifting demographics are also shifting attitudes, and you now have a little more of an advantage. Instead of giving up and booting yourself out the door because you are getting older and/or experiencing vision loss, consider these demographics. By virtue of the numbers and changing attitudes you now have options.
