First thing Cheri said to me as I walked into her weekly-rate hotel room was “I never thought I’d be homeless at 58”. Sadly, as the boomer generation is approaching their retirement years, and so many lost their house and savings in this past recession, more and more seniors will end up without adequate housing!
Even though Cheri is disabled, she says she has to find work because disability income is not enough to survive. Finding work even for a young college graduate is hard these days. Older folks have extreme challenges because without working they don’t have enough money to survive and who hires people close to their senior years anymore?
