Who Will Take Care of Me When I'm Old? by Joy LoverdeGet this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

It’s a simple fact. Almost everywhere in the world, women live longer than men. In the United States, the average life expectancy is 78.6 years for both genders. For women, it’s 81.1 years and for men, it’s 76.1 years.

The number of women who are aging solo is on the rise. In a report from the Administration on Aging, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, A Profile of Older Americans 2016 shows that fewer than half of women over 65 lived with a partner – but almost 75 percent of men did. And the older the woman, the less likely she was to live with a spouse. Only about one-third of women who were 75 or older lived with a spouse.

Who Will Take Care of Me When I’m Old? is a framework for taking action. A quality long life requires a critical need to plan for your future self. This book answers the questions – Where should I live? How do I make sure that I do not run our of money? Where can I find trusted advisors? How do I make friends that I can count on through thick and thin? and much more.

To help make planning easier the book offers customizable worksheets and checklists. The book also provides in-depth research and links to organizations that can assist during times of life’s inevitable transitions.

You don’t have to run a marathon or suffer through a triathlon to be fit and healthy. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.

Inspired by her highly popular blog Be the Dog, Carolee Belkin Walker’s Getting My Bounce Back is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Whether readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to form a fitness habit, they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey, which ultimately brought her stumbling onto a path to resilience and well-being.

Through her fitness journey, Walker discovered powerful sense of confidence and resilience that she’d never had before. Getting My Bounce Back is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most importantly, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as she decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.
