About the Book

The book is a con­cise and com­pre­hen­sive resource for peo­ple who are mid­dle-aged and beyond and are fac­ing the prospects of their own aging and of car­ing for elder­ly rel­a­tives — an often over­whelm­ing task for which lit­tle in life pre­pares us. Using an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach and many per­son­al anec­dotes, Sharona Hoff­man devel­ops rec­om­men­da­tions for build­ing sus­tain­able social, legal, med­ical, finan­cial, and oth­er sup­port sys­tems for aging and care­giv­ing. Aging with a Plan com­bines thor­ough research with engag­ing anec­dotes and prac­ti­cal advice. It cov­ers one-stop shop­ping for any­one in need of guid­ance with­out much time for inde­pen­dent research. The book answers ques­tions such as: What legal doc­u­ments should you be sure to have? What expens­es should you antic­i­pate in retire­ment and how do you save for them? What do you need to know about med­ical care as you or your loved ones grow old­er? How should you approach con­ver­sa­tions about the sen­si­tive top­ic of safe dri­ving with elder­ly loved ones? What options exist for end-of-life care, and how do you make sure that your wish­es will be followed?
