I got a call about a job (elder care) yesterday and am going over for the free first visit tomorrow at 1:30.
I took some time off after my last client (of over three years -the history professor) passed away mid-February. His memorial service was mid-March and I started (slowly) looking for a new position after that.
I never imagined I'd be out of work for two months- certainly have enjoyed the break but I NEED to work- my teacher pension and my hubby's retirement work barely cover all our living expenses (damn health insurance is a big part of that- don't get me started!).
Plus, my implied agreement with dh when I retired fairly young (at 54, after 28 yrs of teaching to care for my dying mother the last yr of her life) was that I would work part time after retirement to supplement my pension.
So, my potential new client (sounds like a good situation for me) is another retired professor, quite elderly, who is in fairly good health (I don't care for folks with great medical needs) who cannot be left alone and who's family needs some relief.
I'll keep you posted!
