Identifying the needs of solos when it comes to managing decisions

about health and well being in the second half of life

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. Yet, solos are largely invisible and often misunderstood - even by those organizastions 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.

Please note that this is STEP ONE of a TWO-STEP Registration Process.

Step One: Register for the Event using the button below.

(But don't click the button yet. Read the entire set of instructions first)

Once you click on the button below and register, you will see both a confirmation page AND our booking system will send you a confirmation message to the email you used to register with us.

Step Two: The ZOOM link contained on the confirmation or in the confirmation email will take you to a second page, which is the registration process for our ZOOM Virtual Conference Platform which will ask you to re-enter your name and email to confirm. That second registration will generate a meeting invitation email which contains your UNIQUE MEETING LINK AND PASSCODE that will allow you to log-in to the meeting/call/workshop at the appointed time.

Yes, we realize that a double registration process can be a bit frustrating, however this addition step is to protect our virtual meeting from uninvited guests gaining access to the online classroom and causing any type of nuisance or disruption.
