I think it's a bad idea...
At that age, you're only a decade away from your average life expectancy. Not to mention, the chances of YOU requiring care are drastically greater,
but now you want to take on the care of another? Not to mention, at 60+, your generation gap is going to put you WAY out of touch with today's youth
pressures, etc. So far, I see the negatives tipping the scales over the positives. Every case is different, I mean, if the mother is well off, can
afford a nanny, and is in good health, etc., but other negatives still apply. All in all....bad idea.
