Gerontology career

  1. Hi,
    I love the elderly, but I don't think that I want to be a nurse. What other careers can I look at? I want to make a decent living too. Can you offer any advice?

    Nursing homes always need good activity directors. Not sure about the pay though.

    Social Worker or Occupational Therapist come to mind. I have thought about both of those if I do not go into nursing.

    OT's can make similar wages to Nurses... Sometimes better. Social Workers make very little from what I have gathered.
