Are you a Solo?

  • Age 50 or older?
  • Currently single (widowed, divorced, separated, never married, or don’t have a life partner)?
  • Don’t have adult children who could provide help as you age, when needed?

The Soloist is a Newsletter that Addresses Your Needs. As Solos grow older, they need a plan for realizing their hopes, meeting their needs, and dealing with the challenges that often come with aging. That’s true for anyone, but it’s especially important when you’re a Solo. If you don’t have a plan, other people will have to make decisions for you, without any clue as to your preferences or wishes.

Welcome to The Soloist, a newsletter from Davis Financial Group, where we share information, expertise, interviews, and stories to help Solos live well, take good care of themselves, and make wise choices for their future.

Thinking about our own mortality makes most of us uncomfortable. We hope that our lives end quickly, rather than after a long decline or a health catastrophe. Yet we all know people whose deaths—as well as the months or even years leading up to it—have been painful to witness.

Deciding where to live as we age is one of the most important decisions Solos make—or sometimes postpone making. Should we stay where we are or move?  Strike out on our own or choose a community that can provide on-site care and support, if and when we need it.
