Elevate Eldercare

May 15, 2024

As the proportion of older Americans grows, so too will the ranks of “solo agers” – people navigating the aging process without children or other relatives. And for elders who need extra assistance in making major decisions around housing and finances, solo aging may lead to legal guardianship and outcomes that don’t align with their values, preferences, or best interests.

Kimberly George, CEO of the New York-based Project Guardianship, joins the podcast to discuss her organization’s mission: building more dignified, person-directed alternatives to guardianship that ensure elders’ true wishes are honored at every step of the aging journey.
