The greatest gift you can give someone is your time. As scarce a commodity that may be for you, it is even more precious for an aging parent or loved one.

What Will Retirement Look Like for You?
Not only does retirement look different from prior generations, so too do the retirement years. Emotional well-being, social engagements, health status, and financial resources will all impact your quality of life when you are retired, and all of these are lifestyle choices. You have more control over your retirement years than you think but you need to plan ahead as the responsibility is primarily yours, not the Government's. Start your thinking, planning, and acting by asking questions of a panel of aging and retirement experts.
"Turning 65? Get Beyond the Denial of Aging. Think, Plan, and Act! Those are the Key to Successful Aging."
