THE SOLO AND SMART AGING BOOK
I am 57. I became a widow at age 49. After hearing Carol speak and reading the book, it has hit home that legal documents and financial planning is only a part of planning. P.H. Mastering Solo Aging Resource Group participant
Carol's program is the most thorough and systematic presentation on the subject of solo aging I have ever heard. I was nothing short of blown away by how far ahead Carol is on the topic. Her subject matter and strategies surpass the several other versions on solo aging that I’ve ever participated in. NYC participant
Carol Marak has designed a life-saving program for many of us who did not realize that the tasks of aging alone are so important. This stage of aging alone is something that has been on my mind even as a child. Almost no relatives, I have used Carol's outline to help me organize many things. I highly recommend this as an opportunity to take stock of one's life before we need things. Preparation for senior hood alone is a curriculum that offers peace of mind. Solo in Los Angeles
