Author speaks directly to Babyboomers

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Baby Boomers listen up.

A south Georgia author has some advice on how to care for your elders while keeping up your own health and well-being.

Dr. Sandra Haymon is giving a seminar tonight at Southern Pines Retirement home on her new book, "Baby Boomers, Sandwiched between Retirement and Caregiving."

It's geared toward the 78-million baby boomers and the financial and emotional struggles many face.

The book has an extensive list of resources and checklists to help with the social and economic struggles that go along with being a caregiver.

"There is such a need for information about caregiving and now about retirement. And especially given our present state of the economy. People are very worried about where they have their money and what's the best way to protect that so they will have money to retire on," said author Dr. Sandra Haymon.

Dr. Haymon has appeared on numerous radio and TV programs including Good Morning America.

Her latest book came out March 3rd, and she's speaking across the country this year on caregiving and retirement. The book is available in bookstores nationwide.  Feedback
