For Baby Boomers, Mother’s Day Puts Focus On Elder Care Crisis

For an increasing number of Baby Boomer daughters, Mother’s Day is a world removed from breakfast in bed and a homemade card with tiny outlined fingerprints.

Rather, it is a day – like so many others – to focus on their own aging mothers and celebrate in ways more appropriate to the limitations of the elderly.

The second Sunday in May serves as a reminder that elder care issues are an increasingly dominant aspect of today’s work and family dynamics in general, with a somewhat greater impact on women, in particular.

Among the many staggering statistics that detail the costs of and rate at which our population is aging, this one stands out: people over 80 years old are the fastest growing segment of the aging population, and women make up the majority of that over-80 demographic.
