Solo and Smart

Solo and Smart teaches viewers, 45+ at risk of aging alone, easy, surefire methods to assess, discover, and plan a better, safe and secure future—giving them full control over how they want to live in the years ahead. Viewers can watch and learn how to identify and evaluate the current challenges. The video content not only shows viewers how to age well but how to live well—by shaping the future they want rather than reacting to it.

In SOLO AND SMART, Carol speaks directly to the growing population of “solo agers,” or people age 50 and up who will not have the traditional familial supports most of our ancestors counted on. The number of adults who live alone and far from family is growing.

Even those who have children cannot count on their help. The number of older adults who live within 10 miles of a relative fell by 12 percent. It’s common for siblings and children to live far away from one another, and the days of the three-generation household are, for the most part, long gone.
