Hoping to help baby boomers as they begin caring for aging parents, Baltimore County's Department of Aging is distributing nearly 200,000 copies of a CD-ROM designed to answer questions about assisted living, nursing homes, retirement communities and more. The free CD, called "Taking Care of Mom and Dad," provides information about the legal protections and resources available to senior citizens and about alternatives for continuing care. "If mom's in the hospital and I'm sitting up at 3 a.m. and worried about her and I can't sleep, now I have the ability to pop this CD in and do all my homework and at 8 a.m., go to work on choosing, making decisions and advocating," said Department of Aging Director Arnold Eppel.
