Dr. Sara Zeff Geber is a recent recipient of the “2018 Influencers in Aging” designation by PBS’ Next Avenue. She is an author, certified retirement coach, and professional speaker on retirement and aging. She has developed a niche specialty as an expert in “Solo Aging,” guiding people who have no children or who are aging alone to have a safe and fulfilling life in their retirement years.
Dr. Geber is the author of the 2018 book, Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers: A Retirement and Aging Roadmap for Single and Childless Adults, which was selected as a “best book on aging well” by the Wall Street Journal. With her speaking and writing, Sara has been raising awareness of Solo Agers for the past 10 years. She believes Solo Agers have unique needs in later life that warrant greater foresight and a more robust approach to planning.
