Yep. Aging in America often sucks.
If you lack family, friends or outside of your home activities, it can quickly turn brutal.
In the same age bracket as you, been through some medical matters, including a 3-month, another 3- month and even a 4-month inpatient stay. As long as you have your faculties, you can find ways to manage.
Learn to communicate with any caregiver. Remember, they're human too. That said, I never discussed politics or religion with them, beyond the surface. To go past that, can create issues.
Answers for most things about life, will be coming from yourself. Not so much about how to be financially stable in the future, should your health deteriorate or where you can live, but how to mentally exist in and with some level of inner peace.
A positive attitude will help. Don't let your being get caught up in what others are saying and doing. Don't be dragged down by a change of values of others or their culture level or intellectual level. Stay with you and your interests.
Try some internet research into aging in America. There is a myriad of resources, including how to manage if alone.
I wish you the best in this.
