Aging Without Children

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, over 35% of Americans are aging without children.  Care for people who are aging is often assumed to be provided by family members, but those who do not have next of kin are often left wondering what steps they can take to secure their own future care in various areas of their lives.  In collaboration with social worker Deidre Waxman, social worker intern Annie McGunagle will be starting a group for those who are aging without children, for these individuals to gain both peer and professional support as well as resources and information.  The group will be a 5-week program beginning in February 2016.  If you are interested in finding out more about this group or would like to attend, please call Annie at 617-730-2772.
