A guide to help women successfully master the many aspects growing old, with partners or on their own

Women, as we know, live longer than men. Wives tend to outlive husbands. Additionally, there is a growing demographic of older women who have never been married or are divorced. Designed for this group of female baby boomers, Maturing with Moxie looks at the social, financial, health, and family circumstances of women over sixty, and suggests tools for creating the best old age possible.

Unlike other books that feature just one or a few of these topics (finances, volunteer activities, housing), well-known consultant Jan Cannon takes a more comprehensive approach, addressing many of the other decisions older women must make as well: changes in family relationships, healthcare options, employment, and how to make friends.

With examples drawn from her own clients, Cannon has written an upbeat book that asks provocative questions, provides useful exercises, and offers the reader numerous resources to find her answers.
