Solo Aging

Approximately 26 million people in the U.S. are currently aging alone, mostly Baby Boomers or Generation Xers. The absence of social safety nets such as spouses or close family members can leave individuals feeling vulnerable or unprepared. In this presentation, the author of “Solo Wise: A Roadmap for Fearless Solo Aging,” will tackle the issues that those of us aging alone need to know.

Beverly Bernstein Joie has been a leader in the Aging Life Care community and was the CEO and Co-Founder of Complete Care Strategies for 23 years. Beverly holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Villanova and is a Certified Aging Life Care advanced professional.  She is a winner of a Brava Award, past president of the ALCA Philadelphia chapter, a public speaker, thought leader, and consultant. Most recently, she is providing a workshop for the Aging Life Care Association at their national conference on April 19, 2024, entitled: “Answering The Call: The Solo Aging Movement.

This will be an in-person program in the MacColl Room of the First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, 201 S. 21st St., at the southeast corner of Walnut St.  The entrance is at the rear of the church off of 21st St.  A handicapped accessible entrance is located in the back of the church on Chancellor St.
