When you are a senior living alone with little or no family the messages posted here by caregivers can be distressing. Is this the wrong venue to ask how independent, single seniors can prepare (as much as they can) for being alone and needing care under various health conditions. For example, should one enter a care facility before absolute need? Can you plan for management of your last days through an institution or legal entity? Trust and funds becomes a major issue, of course.
I would so appreciate hearing what seniors (who are alone) are preparing for their final years.
