Meeting the Challenges of Solo Aging
Overall Rating: 4.4 / 5
Throughout the world, when elders reach a stage where they need a little help, it is almost always the adult children that provide or procure that assistance.
However, almost 20% of baby boomers did not have children – double the rate of all previous generations!
Many more live thousands of miles from their adult children or are estranged. That leaves millions of “Solo Agers” to figure out the best plan for themselves without the help of kids.
This webinar is designed to give Solo Agers (and those who are concerned about solo aging friends and siblings) realistic and concrete steps to take to ensure that they are supported and looked after in their later years.
In "Meeting the Challenges of Solo Aging" by Sara Zeff Geber, you will:
- Discover ways to develop a solid support system;
- Explore key sources of happiness in later life;
- Better understand how a solo ager’s social network differs from that of a parent;
- Explore the most important ways adult children support their aging parents and how to ensure you are similarly supported when you need it;
- Understanding why it is critical to avoid isolation;
- Learn more about the many options for where you might live in later life.
