Are You a Solo Ager? | Will and a Way

Are you a solo ager?

Maybe you don’t have a partner or children. Perhaps you are estranged from your family or your relatives are simply not available or reliable. You are a solo ager.

Statistics tell us that half of the adults in this country are single. As you age or if you become disabled, who will make sure your bills are paid on time? Who is going to help you monitor your health and make sure you get to your appointments?

It is time to think about these things. Decide who will be in charge of your messy life when you need help. The last thing that you want is to end up a ward of the court and have your life directed and controlled by strangers.

Of course, you should have a will or trust with a responsible executor to carry out your wishes, along with your power of attorney for both finance and healthcare.

But does that person know where your assets are? How to monitor or close your social media accounts? Where to find the combination to your safe? How to contact your health providers? What to feed your pets?

Enter www.willandaway.com. It presents detailed questions to prompt you, so you can record the important information needed in case of your illness or disability, a disaster, or your death.

You have your own preferences and opinions. Why not consider these things ahead of time, so you can make your own decisions?

As we age, it’s common to plan for help with household maintenance and cleaning, shopping, meal planning and preparation, transportation, pet care, and more.

In the event of your death, it’s especially important that you leave clear information about your assets – monetary, tangible, and digital.

At the end of the day, you don’t want a stranger or a distant relative in charge of your estate and your fate.

Be sure you leave clear instructions for your executor about accessing your information at Will and A Way, as well as the location of your paper documents.

Life is uncertain. Gain a little peace of mind with Will and a Way.
