No such thing as a secure investment returning 8%-10% per year. Five year CDs are close to 7%. More risk more gain. Bond funds are yielding near 7% with a good chance for capital appreciation in the next few years. REITs are yielding near 9%. Some preferred stocks are also.

Let's say Mom lives till she is 100. Even with no yield that $300,000 should last her. So what you are really talking about is her estate.
