The Baby Boomer generation faces a big challenge when it comes to caring for our parents. Thanks to advances in health care, many Americans live into their eighties and nineties. Just keeping up with seniors’ medical appointments can be a challenge. And if elderly parents don’t live close by, the “worry factor” ratchets up.

Here’s a list of smartphone apps that can help you stay organized. And if you’re organized, maybe that will diminish the feeling that your life is not your own.
