How Childfree Seniors Can Take The Future Into Their Own Hands

by Laura Dixon,
As age-related health issues make it tougher to get around and stay independent, most seniors at some point will rely on a family member for help. Usually, one or more adult children will step in to provide or arrange for care when that day comes.
But what about those who never had children? The folks referred to as “childless” or more recently, “childfree.” Who will care for them when they’re no longer able to care for themselves? Author and retirement planning expert, Dr. Sara Zeff Gebercalls these seniors “solo agers,” and is working to raise awareness about the need for this cohort to plan for their golden years.

Traxx Mobility Systems Titan 500 is a freestanding overhead patient lift for home health care. It features a rechargeable electric motor and allows a single caregiver, often a family member, to safely transfer a disabled person between a wheelchair and a bed. The overhead system has an advantage over traditional floor-based lifts that can be difficult to move over carpet in the confines of a bedroom. The freestanding frame is a much more cost efficient and practical design over the extensive installation and cost of a traditional ceiling lift.
