“How to Thrive in Life as a Solo Ager” at the Enjoy Life Active Aging Symposium
June 21 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC-5
Are you single? Married without children? Do you have adult children who live far away? Is extended family not a part of your daily life? If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are a Solo Ager. Solo Agers are older adults who are making decisions about their future independently. They are optimistic about quality of life despite facing potential challenges.
Dr. Sara Zeff Geber is the nation’s foremost authority on Solo Aging. In this session, she will encourage Solo Agers to plan today in order to thrive later in life. This interactive presentation will help Solo Agers weigh life options and make decisions about the future – including care plans and living arrangements. It will focus on navigating post-retirement life, including identifying what matters most as you age, resources to provide care in later life, and understanding housing options.
This interactive presentation and discussion will provide you with information on how to be your best advocate in the years ahead and understand the steps that you need to take to build a happy, safe, and secure life regardless of family support. Dr. Sara Geber’s style is light-hearted, conversational, and provocative. Her presentation is based on her new book, Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers which will also be available for purchase following the talk.
