American Baby boomers are aging and fifteen million of them are childfree. Who will take care of them as they retire? Unprecedented in U.S. history, this demographic is creating challenges for these individuals as well as for society.
Childless Solo Agers. In Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers, Sara Zeff Geber, a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Behavior and a Certified Retirement Coach, coins the term “Solo Ager.” Solo Agers are the segment of society that either does not have adult children or is single and expects be on their own as they grow older.
A Happy retirement gift for women―and men. With a compelling and readable style, Geber takes her Solo Ager readers on a journey toward happy retirement, starting with the choice to be childless and why so many boomers were able to make that decision. Through stories and narrative, she explores housing choices, relationships, and building a support system. Geber shares her expertise on what constitutes a fulfilling older life and how Solo Agers can maximize their opportunities for financial security, physical health, meaning and purpose in the second half of life.
