Carol Marak, Solo Aging Expert



The Go-to Authority on Aging Alone

After spending nearly a decade helping my parents with the aging issues, I had a wake-up call, “Who will do for me all the things I did for my parents?”  Taking note of that difficult truth, I got on the stick and created a roadmap to guide me in addressing the inevitable complexities of aging alone.

I know what’s truly needed when a person has only herself to rely on.

I have taught hundreds of adults to think more creatively about and to take action for acquiring stronger health, a connected and supportive lifestyle, an inspiring purpose, a strong faith-based community, more engagement, safe and secure  finances and legal concerns—and more. Media refers to me as the go-to authority of the fastest growing adult population—aging alone. 

First and foremost, I am a faithful follower of Jesus Christ and because of Him that my passion and purpose strengthens. My favorite activities are studying the Scripture, walking and engaging with friends and family.   

And most importantly, I'm thrilled when individuals begin to explore the wide-range of possibilities they have available to them for living well far beyond tomorrow!
