The Nation’s Foremost Authority On Solo Aging . . .

As the last of the baby boomers enter retirement, planning for the health and wellness of solo agers has never been more important.


Over 22 million adults over 55 live alone” (U.S. Census Bureau)


Over 17% of baby boomers do not have adult children; almost twice the rate of all previous generations” (U.S. Census Bureau)


Over 22% of older adults are estimated to be at risk due to lack of family or spousal support.” (Maria Carney)

This means the health industry, financial planners, real estate agents, retirement coaches, senior centers, retirement communities, and more need the skills to:

Help solo agers plan for their golden years

Foster strong social networks for solo agers

Support solo agers into their 7th decade and beyond

Encourage solo agers to create a life of meaning, purpose, and fun

Create communities that meet the needs and challenges of solo agers

Dr. Sara Zeff Geber

The unrivaled thought leader in Solo Aging, Dr. Geber coined the phrase and wrote the book on it!

With her book, Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers, media appearances, and speaking engagements, the phrases “Solo Ager” and “Solo Aging” have become the industry standard for highlighting the special needs of people aging without adult children or other family support. Dr. Geber is a fellow with Nexus Insights, a think tank for new ideas in caregiving and senior living; a member and frequent speaker for the American Society on Aging; and long time member of the Life Planning Network, and the Encore Network.

While she describes the decades after 70 as “bonus years” and encourages baby boomers to think of aging as an adventurous journey, Dr. Geber has found that solo agers (single seniors, and those without children or other family support, often have no safety net or script for the future.

Dr. Geber is determined to give Solo Agers and the professionals who work with them new planning tools and a positive way to approach those bonus years.
