The JCC welcomes author Sharon Hoffman to discuss her book, Aging With a Plan: How a Little Thought Today Can Vastly Improve Your Tomorrow. 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?
