Publisher's Summary

Baby boomers retiring: American baby boomers are aging, and 15 million of them never had children. Who will take care of them? Unprecedented in US history, this demographic will create challenges for these individuals, as well as for society. Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers is a passionate exploration of the path ahead for "Solo Agers".

Solo Agers aging well: In Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers, Sara Zeff Geber coins the term "Solo Ager" to refer to the segment of society that either does not have adult children or is single and believes they will be on their own as they grow older. However, it's not just the Solo Ager that can learn from this book. Financial advisors, elder law and estate attorneys, senior care managers, and others whose clientele is on the far side of 60 will benefit as well.

Retirement and good living: With a compelling and accessible style, Gerber takes listeners on a journey, starting with the choice for childlessness and why so many boomers were able to make that decision. She then reviews the role of adult children in an aging parent's world and suggests ways in which Solo Agers can mitigate the absence of adult children by relationship-building and rigorous planning for their future.
