Your Parents Don't Want to Live with YOU either! With Author Star Bradbury

Your Parents Don't Want to Live with YOU either! With Author Star Bradbury

You will love listening to today’s guest on the Second Wind Podcast. She believes our soul's purpose needs to be addressed and met here and that's why she is doing what she’s doing. She is a very selfless person and has some very definite feelings about death and our life and our soul. I appreciate what she does and for being on the show.

This guest is Star Bradbury. Star is a senior living expert who has given thousands of families the education and information needed to navigate the complex world of senior Healthcare.

She has been working with seniors for over 25 years and as the founder of Senior Living Strategies, she regularly collaborates and consults with individuals and families from all walks of life as well as professionals in the legal, medical, financial, and long-term care insurance world. Her 18 years working with a nationally recognized Life Care Community allows her to share her expertise in this otherwise confusing and complex senior living option as well.

Her new book, “Successfully Navigating Your Parents’ Senior Years” started as an outline that came to her in a dream. There was a different intended title called “Your Parents Don't Wanna Live with You Either” which I thought was hysterical and really on point.


Star has 72 accumulative years, which has gotten her to the point where she has said she is not afraid of intense personal growth. Star has all the ingredients to make her a perfect fit for Second Wind.
