If you’re a senior without grown children—one of the nation’s 15.2 million solo agers—it’s important to ask yourself, “What happens when I can no longer care for myself?”
As they grow older, parents often rely on adult children to arrange care and help with decision-making. But solo agers must become self-reliant, especially when they live alone.
That’s why estate planning is so vital for solo agers. You must develop legal directives to cover contingencies and choose a team to handle life decisions in the event you can no longer manage for yourself.
You’ll also want to consider options for covering long-term care—the single biggest unpredictable expense facing adults after they retire.
LifeCare at Friendship Village of Dublin offers an affordable way to cover long-term care. This all-in-one package of flexible services, amenities and future health care guarantees access to assisted living, skilled nursing, short-term rehab and memory care support.
