    I usually work in manufacturing, but its getting increasingly difficut to find work. What seems to be the field now that has more new hires in the 50+ group. Obviously, I need to work another 15 years. So, what path would be more fruitful. I'm open to work in a variety of fields.

    non-medical in-home care is a great industry for boomers and older. Home Instead Senior Care provides caregivers for seniors in their homes, ranging from simple companionship to personal cares, part-time a few hours a week to live-in. and it's a great job for those who are more mature - especially if you have family experience taking care of your own parents or grandparents.

    and Home Instead Senior Care is an AARP Preferred Employer of Older Workers
