The demographic bulge known as the Baby Boom cohort is now more than half way through the life continuum. A growing portion of this group is composed of “solos.” These are individuals who cannot or choose not to rely on family to help navigate life events and make health decisions. Yet, solos are largely invisible and often misunderstood—even by those organizations who serve older adults.
Come hear about the framework for solos generated by a recent task force. The Solo Seniors project was an 18-month study conducted by the Citizens League and funded through a Bush Community Innovation grant to understand the challenges many individuals face as they age alone.
Share your “solo” stories and help identify the emerging needs of solos when it comes to managing decisions about health and well being in the second half of life.
Let's increase awareness about this oftentimes silent issue facing many seniors and the need to create a plan in advance to protect vulnerable aging adults.
