Summary
"For those who have no support system in place, the thought of aging without help can be a frightening, isolating prospect. Whether you have friends and family ready and able to help you or not, growing old does not have to be an inevitable decline into helplessness. But having a plan is essential. This practical guide goes way beyond estate planning to help readers prepare on their own for all the changes in store, empowering them to make proactive plans for their own lives rather than entrusting decisions to family and community."--Page [4] of cover
