Problem:  You're part of the growing sandwich generation, caught in the middle of caring for your kids and your aging parents. It's sometimes overwhelming to manage your dual duties, as you try to address the changing needs of both groups.

Solution: Aimed towards helping busy parents find practical tips and advice for taking care of their older loved ones, Marion Somers, Ph.D., an acclaimed geriatric care manager has launched Elder 411 and Elder 911 ($0.99-$1.99, itunes.com), essential iPhone apps for every family caregiver. Use Elder 911 in the event of an emergency, to find out the right questions to ask the doctor and how to prepare for discharge. The other app, Elder 411, helps you tackle tough subjects including money, wills, and even "elderproofing" the home.
