For fifteen years, the Home Instead Senior Care® franchise network has been devoted to providing seniors with the highest quality care in their own homes, and to arming families with the information they need to make the best decisions about caring for aging loved ones. The Get Mom Moving campaign is part of that effort, designed to help seniors stay mentally and physically active, as well as emotionally engaged.
Stephanie A. Studenski, M.D., M.P.H., who consulted with Home Instead Senior Care on the Get Mom Moving activities, is an expert in the field of mobility and balance disorders in older adults.
Other public service programs sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care have been aimed at helping families understand and manage a variety of issues related to elder care. Those resources are available at:

Stages of Senior Care provides tools to help you assess your loved ones' care requirements and illustrates how to calculate costs, avoid pitfalls, identify scams, and choose the right options now and into the future.
