UnitedHealth Foundation released its 2016 health rankings for senior populations. They projected that by 2030, twenty-five states would see a 50% or above uptick in that sector with Alaska topping the list at a whopping 85.1%! Since seniors are the largest consumers of health care services, an enormous expansion of that age group can only mean one thing – a higher demand for healthcare professionals now, and well into Alaska’s future.
But are you ready to leave “The Lower 48” for the wilds of the great North? Well, consider this incentive. Alaska pays its permanent residents an annual dividend check derived from oil revenues,which last year was just over $2,000. Nothing to sneeze at, especially after enjoying a warmer than usual winter season. Still not sure you want to commit long-term? Try one of our travel positions and give yourself some extra time before and after to explore “The Last Frontier” to its fullest.
Sightseeing will take on a new meaning for you in Alaska. Where else could you stay in a public use cabin and watch whales and glaciers calve? Or be awestruck by the pure majesty of Mt. McKinley and a full grown grizzly bear? Where else can you find urban centers like Fairbanks with a cool Ice Museum or Juneau with a hot Jazz Festival? Where else could you savor a gourmet, locally sourced dinner on a 42’ boat cruising one of National Geographic’s “Top 10 Destinations” but Kodiak Island? Alaska is all this and much, much more.
