Our dad, 82 yrs old, has outlived his retirement fund and has to work. He refuses to move in with his children and we are unable to supplement him. Dad does floor measures. He used to sell wholesale floor covering so he knows the importance of precise measures to save customer money. His drawings are like an architect. It's physical labor getting in his knees, bending down and walking up/down stairs. Some houses are still in construction phase and no bathroom or heat/air conditioning. Due to constant anxiety, Dad now has Afib and it is becoming more challenging. He is careful to schedule appts around meals and medication. He recently fell ascending his stairs to apt after he completed a couple jobs. I wish he could retire! Don't know which I hate; that he has to work or that I can't subsidize him!
