The 2020 U.S. Census reports, 1 million+ women enter the growing ranks of nearly 15 million widows and widowers in America each year, the median age a woman becomes a widow is 59.4, half of widows over 65 will outlive their husbands by 15 years, and 80 percent of men die married, yet 80 percent of women die single. 

Clients need to consider the high probability of aging alone and then approach the future using a method to assess, discover, and plan. 

Participants will learn how to help clients prepare for the possibility of aging alone without family nearby. 

Participants will learn:
  1. Why a life plan is necessary. Every person’s life is filled with risks and strengths. It’s important for clients to assess both if they want a secure, long life. 
  2. How to help clients organize for and research the available options that will address, improve, and rectify the risks, while maintaining the strengths. 
  3. The steps needed for clients to design and deploy a plan of action leading to a stronger and secure future.
