Don't get overwhelmed, get active
As members of the Baby Boomer generation start to turn 60, they face a new responsibility-caring for their aging parents. If you find yourself in this position, you are probably overwhelmed by the number of duties that are involved. A survey conducted in 2004 by the National Alliance for Caregiving and the AARP found that caregivers perform many tasks, from providing transportation to shopping for groceries to helping with the activities of daily living such as getting in and out of bed and getting dressed. In addition to those types of care, you may also serve as a financial advisor and advocate for your parents.
