Baby Boomers' Greatest Challenge: Eldercare for Their Aging and Elderly Parents--Mama Moves In and Research CD Save the Day
Mama Moves In is a dress rehearsal for in-home elder care for aging and elderly parents. The companion Research CD gives quick and easy access to elder care products and information which is organized, database-controlled and internet-resourced., so the search results are always current. Release date: March 16, 2010.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 16, 2010 -- Whether the motivation to move an aging or elderly parent into a Baby Boomer's home is economics, love or both, the challenges are the same—how to prepare for and manage elder care for an aging parent in a Baby Boomer's home.
The effects of the Baby Boomers' generation have moved through society like a swallowed pig through an Anaconda. First it was pediatricians and diapers, then grade schools and high schools, then autos and homes and so on. But now that those same Boomers are getting ready for retirement a sobering challenge confronts them.
Baby Boomers are facing the greatest challenge of their generation--what to do with their aging parents. Click here. And there are over 70,000,000 Boomers with millions of parents who need elder care—now!
As the economy turns down, Baby Boomers are left with fewer and fewer good choices. The Boomers share of society’s income and assets shrinks as the economy shrinks. There will be less income and fewer assets to allocate to elder care for the Baby Boomers’ aging parents. Regardless, soon it will be, “my home or the rest home,” for an elderly parent.
Many Boomers will conclude that the rest-home facilities that Medicare will cover are not desireable for an aging parent. Other Boomers might insist that aging parents belong in a Boomer's home. But economics could make the Boomers’ decisions. For more about the economy and elder care, Click Here.
How can Baby Boomers prepare to give in-home elder care for an aging and elderly parent? Mama Moves In and the companion Research CD, "are the right tools in the right place at the right time," according to Irene Broussard, R.R., CRNA. The book, Mama Moves In, is a dress rehearsal for elder care in a Baby Boomer's home based on 5 ½ years of elder care experience in the author's home. To read what the professionals have to say, Click Here.
With the state of the economy, options are getting more limited. The Boomers have to explore in-home elder care for elderly and aging parents,, and there is a dearth of written and digital information designed to assist with in-home elder care. The books have not been written, and there are no organized research tools other than the search engines. Searches using any of today’s powerful search engines result in thousands and thousands of “hits.” And it takes time to wade through the “hits” to glean the information needed at the moment.
The elder care information in ResearchPro comes from elder care professionals—doctors, nurses and other elder care professionals as well as federal and state governments. What Boomers need to know from Alzheimer’s and Dementia to Drugs and Drug Plan Benefits to Medicaid and Medicare to Safety and Social Security Benefits to Wills & Trusts is available quickly and easily with a few clicks of a mouse. InformationResearchPro organizes over 150 categories of elder care information. Boomers can find all of the elder care information needed.
Boomers can shop for hundreds and hundreds of elder care products for aging parents--products that save time for the elder care provider and make life easier for the aging parent. ProductResearchPro organizes products into categories that can be searched quickly and easily. And this includes drugs for the elderly. Boomers can shop, compare prices and buy for front-door delivery.

UK Event Challenges Us To Do Better For SeniorsMarch 8, 2010
Ensuring that elderly people have access to medical and social support, the use of new technologies to make it easier for them to live independent lives and helping the elderly to stay active within society are issues that will be discussed during the Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science, taking place in the UK from March 12 through 21 March with over 130 events in over 40 cities across the country. Aimed at a range of different audiences, including policy makers, business, the media, the general public and students of all ages, the events include traditional lectures and exhibitions to theatrical performances, film screenings and topical debates. Among the topics to be addressed are the loneliness and lack of independence for many older people. New technologies have enormous potential to help elderly people live independently. However, many are not aware of the benefits, do not know how to use and engage with digital technologies or simply don't feel confident enough to use it. At “Improving everyday life: getting connected to public services,” older people will talk about their personal experiences with digital technologies and their applications and how these helped them be less isolated and more independent. IT taster sessions will be offered to the elderly to encourage them to explore new technologies, and local service providers will demonstrate how their services can be accessed and requested online. For many older people, quality of life is affected by poor health. Currently there are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK, the most common being Alzheimer's disease. Behind these facts and figures, say event organizers, are individuals and families learning to live with the condition and get on with their lives. Stereotypes about people are however often negative and disabling. At the event “Dementia: don't fear it” two people with dementia who are active campaigners will speak about their experiences and views. Images and interviews from an ongoing research project on how and why some people with dementia become campaigners or change agents will stimulate a debate with a Q & A session. Another issue that will be broached is the media’s role in shaping people's attitudes. The way older people are portrayed in the media influence the way people think about them and the way we think about ourselves. But what do we really think about ageism? The European Social Survey (ESS) database collects and stores information on the social attitudes of thousands of residents across Europe. “What do the British think about…Ageism, Welfare and Political Institutions” is an event aimed at journalists. It will demonstrate the range of data freely accessible through the ESS database and explain how to access and use it. Data on individual states as well as comparative data can be quickly and easily gathered. By better understanding social science data, hopefully stereotypes will be challenged.
