While we all hope to age gracefully, we need to prepare for the potential risks of aging as it relates to investing and financial wellbeing.
Whether you’re counting on Social Security to fund most of your retirement income or supplement it, you want to make sure you get all of the money you’re entitled to.
As with anything in life, our individual preferences and circumstances will vary. Some may want to ‘age in place,’ while others may need to consider other housing options.
Aging solo is about those individuals who are widowed or not married, live alone and have no family or none they can count on. They are going through the last years of their lives on their own. It can be just fine until one’s health declines and the usual activities and access to friends get out of reach.
