The perception of seniors and their lifestyles has changed in the last twenty years. Seniors are no longer thought of as individuals who sit on their front porch all day watching the world go by. It is now recognized that
seniors have become the movers and shakers in society. Upon retirement, you can find many seniors actively involved in sports, recreation and travel.
The seniors of today are also dispelling the myth that you have to have a large retirement fund to see the world. Retirees have found a way to travel and experience different cultures, even if they have a modest retirement account. Seniors that register as house sitters have found the experience to be gratifying, exciting and easy.
Seniors are able to see and do things which would otherwise be out of the question for them--such as living at a beach front villa, working ranch, or strolling through a private, English country garden. But most important, seniors are able to see the world without having to pay for lodging--simply by providing a much needed service to a home owner who is away.
Reports tell us that senior house sitters are becoming the choice of many home owners when the need for a sitter arises.
Home owners are comfortable with senior house sitters because these individuals (or couples) are mature, responsible and confident. Seniors also bring a host of skills with them simply because of their life experience. Home owners feel confident in leaving their home, property and pets with a senior. They know if a problem arises, a senior is competent to handle it. If a tree falls in the yard, or if a pet needs to be taken to a vet, home owners trust a senior’s judgment in handling the
little things that may arise.
