Changes with age – 3
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Baby boomers, people born between 1946 and 1964 are starting to turn 65 this year. NIH’s Dr. Marie Bernard, says as boomers are reaching retirement age, retirement patterns are changing.
Bernard: The days when people would retire and that's it – they sat back in the rocking – are long gone. And we see some people who go from full-time work to part-time work and then to a traditional retirement. Some people go from full-time working one job to another career.
Narrator: She adds that today’s retirees are following many different patterns, showing they have better health and more vigor. For more on retirement patterns, visit www.nia.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
