How to Age With Grace

Living Your Best Life in Your 70s, 80s, and Beyond

What if you had an owner’s manual to answer your questions about aging?

Now, you do.

The idea for the book was born when I found myself having to make several life-altering decisions at the same time—whether to sell my condo and stop living independently, decide where to live instead, give up my car, and close my book-coaching and editing business. I needed more information before I could make these decisions, so I started researching. I realized almost immediately that if I was grappling with these issues, no doubt other people my age were doing so as well. I focused my research on ten questions to which older adults need answers, ranging from how to develop the best attitude about aging to how to talk to my adult children about end-of-life issues.

How to Age with Grace: Living Your Best Life in Your 70s, 80s, and Beyond answers the ten most pressing questions older adults ask to help them live well now and prepare for the years ahead.
