As the cafe opened and customers placed orders, elderly employees wearing aprons get busy. Despite the lack of professional skills, they brew coffee by remembering what they practiced overnight. They also have no problem handling payments in accordance with the directions. Run by a senior club, this cafe hires elderly baristas. Twelve senior citizens work on shifts.

A healthy drink production facility, which is run by another senior club, is also filled with vitality. They are producing a variety of made-to-order drinks.

[Soundbite] Kim Ki-sun(79-year-old, Employee at Healthy Drink Manufacturer) : "Working is also exercise. It is far better to meet my colleagues and communicate with them than idling at home."

The programs offer jobs in diverse fields from restaurants to manufacturing companies and help boost the health and welfare of senior citizens. Roughly 10,400 elderly people are vigorously enjoying their later years through jobs offered by eleven senior clubs in Chungcheongbuk-do Province.
