Joy Loverde, author, The Complete Eldercare Planner (revision 4) and Who Will Take Care of Me When I’m Old, discusses longevity and its effects of growing older.

Joy brings unique thoughts and questions for us to consider: Start thinking about: Who’s going to look at me (to me) FOR care?

The questions Joy addresses:
What’s your definition of care? (Expanded definition of significance of longevity)
(Why we can expect to be caregivers. Longevity. We’re aging with people alongside them and we care about them.)
What is the significance of longevity as it relates to caregiving?

Joy’s books, The Complete Eldercare Planner – has a 4th edition. Why another edition? Can you tell us about that?

When can solo agers expect caregiving to begin?

Joy, also explains the Value of Social model vs. Medical model.

As we age the one experience we all have in common is the need to manage change. So many changes will be upon us – like the possibility of having to move or giving up the car keys. Listen to the interview and learn more about caregiving! Thank you.

Carol Marak, Author, Speaker, Go-to Authority on Aging Alone

After spending nearly a decade helping her elderly parents with the aging issues, Carol had a wake-up call, “Who will do for me all the things I did for my parents?” Taking note of that difficult realization, she got on the stick and created a roadmap to guide her in addressing the inevitable complexities of aging while living alone.

Carol knows what’s truly needed when a person has only herself to rely on.

She has taught hundreds of adults to think more creatively about and to take action for acquiring stronger health, a connected and supportive lifestyle, an inspiring purpose, more engagement, safe and secure finances and legal concerns—and more. Media refers to Carol Marak as the go-to authority of the fastest growing adult population—aging alone aka, solo agers.

Outside of my passion for mentoring and supporting solos, I enjoy the outdoors as an avid walker.

And most importantly, I'm thrilled when individuals begin to explore the wide-range of possibilities they have available to them to live well far beyond tomorrow!
