As a baby boomer myself I have seen a lot of things happen and a lot of change in my lifetime. I wanted to have my golden years stress free and relaxing with perhaps some charity work. This is not what has happened. Along with many baby boomers, I still have to work to support myself and lifestyle.
Apart from working there are many things that can be done as a baby boomer, one of which I think is very beneficial to society.
Volunteering time with the young kids. You can go into local day care and pre K and share stories with the young. The kids miss out on the story telling due to watching and playing on the internet all the time.
We have a lot to offer society and we can discover a lot from society as well. Learning the new techniques and keeping abreast of the latest apps. I know my grand kids keep me on my toes with all the technology which can be overwhelming at times.
