Today’s sandwich generation is under more pressure than ever, managing care for aging parents or parents-in-law and their own children, through a pandemic, economic uncertainty, and societal shifts. A compounding factor for the sandwich generation is that older adults are living longer, and families are having children later in life.
Many sandwich generation family caregivers have had to make financial or career sacrifices in order to maintain their caregiving responsibilities, and they don’t know where to turn for help. A Home Instead care professional can help alleviate some of the stress by taking on many of the day-to-day responsibilities so adult sons and daughters can enjoy the time they are able to spend with aging parents or in-laws.
To help sandwich generation caregivers, Home Instead, Inc. conducted research and developed resources and they are available at www.homeinstead.com/sandwichgen.
