10 Ways to Care for Mom on Mother's Day
Date:4/29/2009

From Dr. Dan Tobin, Family Caregiving Expert and Founder of Care Support of America

NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- "Thirty million baby boomers are caring for their aging parents -- often their widowed or single Moms -- often from far away," says Dan Tobin, MD, Founder and CEO of Care Support of America and a nationally recognized expert in eldercare, family caregiving, and family dynamics. "This can be extraordinarily stressful for all involved."

Take the time to see how she is adapting to the practical, emotional, and financial challenges of aging and possibly living alone. By focusing on the present, and seeing clearly, you'll have a better grasp on how you and your family can tangibly be of help.

3. Help your Mom stay connected to others

Encourage her 'social connec
