Meeting the Challenges of Solo Aging
Speaker: Dr. Sara Zeff Geber
Dr. Sara Zeff Geber, 2018 recipient of the “Influencers in Aging” designation by PBS’ Next Avenue, is an author, certified retirement coach, and professional speaker on retirement and aging. She has developed a niche specialty working with “Solo Agers,” people who have no children or who are aging alone. Dr. Geber is the author of Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers: A Retirement and Aging Roadmap for Single and Childless Adults (Mango Press, 2018) which was selected that year as a “best book on aging well” by the Wall Street Journal. With her speaking and writing, Sara has been raising awareness of Solo Agers for the past 10 years. She believes Solo Agers have unique needs in later life that warrant greater foresight and a more robust approach to planning.
In this talk, Dr. Geber will address:
Identifying the planning tasks that solo agers need to complete in order to be safe and secure in later life
Recognizing a variety of ways to be legally and financially prepared for older life
Deciding where and how to live in later life
Knowledge of where resources can be found for solo agers
