Older Moms Want To Stay In Own Homes

On this Mothers Day, it seems many aging moms would prefer to stay at home, live independently, cook meals, clean and do gardening work. Those thoughts result from a new national survey of mothers who are approaching retirement. Jackie Hickey of Bayshore Healthcare in Toronto says many moms could care less about pricey flowers, gifts or restaurant meals.

Hickey suggests the best Mothers Day gift for older moms on their special day is to take the whole family to her place, roll up the sleaves, help her cook dinner and dig in the garden beside her. About a thousand aging Canadian mothers were questioned for the survey.
