The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Addresses The Important Topic Of “Solo Seniors” Being Their Own Advocates For Aging Needs.

Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, encourages solo seniors to take action while healthy and clear minded to clarify their wishes and establish legal documents and the services of a professional fiduciary to carry out their designated desires.

DECATUR, GA, March 18, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Out Of The Baby Boomer Generation An Influx Of Solo Seniors.” Ms. Pawley defines “solo seniors” as “those who have no living family or friends that can serve as legal agent for them.”

Pawley writes, “According to the U.S. Census Bureau, back in 2010, the oldest baby boomer had not turned 65. Yet, since the 2010 census, about 10,000 baby boomers a day have turned 65 years of age. By 2030 all boomers will be at least age 65.”

Pawley continues adding, “As a generation that has broken through previous barriers posed by sex, race, marital status and more, many in this group of trend setters embraced lifestyles outside the norm. As a result,” she says, “millions who chose not to marry and have families will be what is referred to as “solo seniors” or those who have no living family or friends that can serve as a legal agent for them should they become unable to make important health and legal decisions. Of course,” she acknowledges, “there will also be solo seniors who outlive their family and friends. Boomers are breaking the age barrier and outliving previous generations too!”

According to Pawley, “No matter how one arrives at being defined as a solo senior, it’s important to make decisions about health care, designating a medical power of attorney, creating a will and advanced health care directives while you are healthy and able.” She states, “Clarifying how you wish to be cared for if you become incapacitated or unable to communicate and having someone to carry out those wishes will provide a sense of comfort.”

Pawley adds a link to an article she considers a “must-read for every solo senior.” Pawley adds, that the author of the article, “outlines the steps she took and the fears she had as she went about finding a fiduciary.”
