Check out this free webinar by Linda J. Camp on June 12: "A Backup Plan for Solo Seniors: Health Care Decision Making for People Aging Alone."
Talking about the last life chapters isn’t easy for anyone, but it is especially difficult for “solos;” older adults who lack the traditional family support structure. When crafting wills, trusts, Powers of Attorney and Advance Care Directives, members of this group struggle with who to designate as a surrogate. Solos “with capacity,” are a largely invisible but growing group. Come hear about and discuss the foundational work on this issue that is underway in Minnesota.
- Gain awareness and understanding of the diverse personal circumstances and diverse perspectives of solo older adults
- Explore the unique issues, needs, gaps, and barriers faced by solos in planning for late-life
- Learn about replicable work in Minnesota directed toward implementing practical solutions for solos
- Discuss opportunities to contribute to current research
