It’s arguably one of the most selfless roles someone can play in life, a caregiver. It’s a job that requires around-the-clock care and compassion.

On Sunday, the caregivers were the ones getting taken care of at West Bloomfield’s “A Day off for Caregivers” event hosted by The Dorothy & Peter Brown Adult Day Care Center.

“It’s a day for all the caregivers to relax and enjoy and not think about everyday life for our loved ones,” said Beth Sadoff, a Metro Detroit caregiver to and wife of Edward, who lives with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

“Many people don’t understand the impact of credit scores on their financial well-being, but your credit report is actually your financial power,” Gesher Financial Education Manager Laltsha Cunningham said in a press release. “Your score determines how much you pay for everything, for example it can affect the rates you pay for home and car insurance. And your score can even determine whether you get a job in some places as many employers do a credit check.”

Gesher Human Services, one of the largest human service agencies in metro Detroit, will be offering its popular Recharge! career development program for adults 45 years and older, on Mondays and Wednesdays from March 11-27, 10 a.m. to noon at its headquarters in Southfield (29699 Southfield Road). The program is again being offered as a recent report from Pew Research Center shows that the older workforce has nearly quadrupled in size since the mid-1980s, driven partly by the growth of the 65 and older population.

In addition, the earning power of more mature workers has also increased: in 1987, a typical worker aged 65 or older earned around $13 an hour while in 2022 the hourly rate average was $22. Recharge! will offer participants the opportunity to reconnect with their skills and interests, refresh their resume, restore belief in themselves – particularly if they are in a middle of life transition – and re-energize their job search process. The program requires registration and a $40 material fee, although scholarships are available to ensure there is no financial barrier to participating. To register for Recharge! call 248.233.4472 or go to the events page at geshermi.org.
