Solo Aging

One of the questions people ask me about being childless is, “Don’t you worry about who will take care of you when you are older?” I’m always surprised by this because this isn’t a good reason to have kids, and it’s no guarantee that they will, or can, be there for you.

My strategy for growing old is to plan for it. And to have a wide range of friends of all ages…to share the care-taking amongst us as we age into it. Check out this article from Sarah Zeff Geber at Forbes on “solo aging” from also on the number of famous people who don’t have kids.
