    Baby boomers have many challenges, including planning for retirement while at the same time looking after aging parents who sometimes have myriad health problems.  Many of these elderly parents struggle with the issue of giving their kids access to medical records.  Going to the doctor with your parents can make them feel useless and left out.  In addition, sensitive information may be revealed that the parent may or may not want their kids to know.  Should their children know that they are

    Gender Gap Closing For Women In Their 60’s
    More women in their 60's and 70's are still working than ever according to research by Harvard economists Claudia Goldin and Lawrence Katz.  Study participants said it was partly because they have more education and work experience than did prior generations, as well as access to better jobs.  “They had a stake in their work and enjoyed it,” Goldin told AARP The Magazine.  The study is based on the federal Current Population Survey and the Health and Retirement Study, which examined health,
