SOLO AGING:  HOW TO PLAN FOR AGING WITHOUT A FAMILY CAREGIVER
Carol was a caregiver for both her parents:  Her mom had congestive heart failure and her dad had Parkinson’s disease.  After they died and she turned 63, she said, “It occurred to me … oh, my goodness, I am not married.  I do not have children. Who is going to do that for me?”

Research has found that approximately 25% of Americans 65 years old and above are aging alone without a spouse, adult children or relatives to rely on for assistance and company during senior years.  The majority of them are women.

This can be frightening to think about!  So we start planning!  We find the support of like-minded people; we think creatively; we develop a social network; and we get the paperwork in order!

Join us for a discussion of the personal and legal considerations involved in aging as a solo senior – and how to begin planning for tomorrow-today!
