Unemployed Older Adult

Assisting the Unemployed Older Adult


Wagner and Niles-Yokum (2014) point out that, due to increasing popularity of continuing work in late life, there are a growing number of organizations emerging to provide training, support, and job-search services to older adults (page 128).


Investigate an organization that provides employment services to older adults. In your post:


  • Explain the program(s) and/or service(s) provided and how an individual can access them.
  • Imagine you are 65+ looking for employment services. How easy was it to find the resource, access the information, and was it useful?

    Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
