Eat Your Brussels Sprouts, Mom

If we're lucky, we'll get to watch our parents get old. Lucky, because for most of us the alternative is worse. They're outliving their savings; they need medical care; they need a place to live; they need help with their affairs; they need ... you.

If this sounds familiar, you're not alone. Our parents at least those 85 or older are the fastest growing segment of the population. Words like "geriatrics," which we conveniently ignored as we thumbed through our parents' Reader's Digest, now catch our eye. We need information on this new role of ours.

Myprimetime hopes to help with this special report. You'll find stories and tips on finding the right retirement home, administering elder care, compassionate care-giving, reverse mortgages and even choosing a great vacation.

Below is a directory to guide you. With a little insight and planning, you can make your parents' sunset years that much more golden.
