Solo Aging—Healthcare Decision-Making
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Who can attend
Do you or someone you know identify as a solo ager? Solo agers are described as anyone over 50, who lives alone, who is not married (including due to divorce or death of a spouse) or partnered in a long-term relationship and have no living children. According to recent census data, nearly 26 million Americans are solo agers, and that number is expected to grow in coming decades.
Capitol Hill Village is partnering with Corewood Care to present a six-week series on solo aging. The series is guided by a workbook (provided) and videos to supplement learning materials. Each week will center on a different topic specific to solo aging. Participants are encouraged but not required to attend each session.
