More and more Americans are living to see their grandkids and great-grandkids. This hour we'll learn how to care for our parents and grandparents.



Getting old is not for sissies. Approximately 8,000 Americans turn 65 every day, and by 2025, over 73 million will be Medicare recipients. As the nation grays, the question of caring for the elderly has taken center stage. This hour, we’ll learn how children of older adults can keep their sanity, and some of their money while caring for mom and dad.

    My mother was in Phoenix. She fooled us on the phone. She sounded fine. But she was really in trouble. Luckily we went for a visit and were able to bring her back to Ohio. I have suffered many hours of guilt. She only lived 3 years back here with us.
