How to be a Successful Solo-Ager

Are you a 'solo-ager?' That's a contemporary name for people over 60 who don't have either a spouse or children, or whose families are geographically remote. Because older adults often rely upon their adult children to help with the routine tasks of daily life, being a solo-ager presents a special set of challenges. And at least 20% of baby boomers fall into this category - double previous generations! To help you plan for success as a solo-ager, the PJCC has created a new program featuring discussion, tips and techniques for successfully navigating this period in life. Subjects will include ways to substitute for the support children typically give parents and preparations solo agers are advised to make while in their active years. Anyone interested is requested to attend the kick-off meeting on Sunday, May 7 or call Betty Burr at 650.378.2698 for more information.
