In brief: Recommended

Older people should stay involved with their profession.
They should continue to propagate knowledge. They achieve great wisdom from experience. Otherwise, they will feel worthless, develop depression, dementia and medical illnesses. They can be most productive in later years as the pressures of earning and supporting family are less.
