Sandwich Generation

Sandwich Generation | Caregiver BlissAre you someone who finds themselves caring for both your children and aging parents? If so, you're part of what's often called the "Sandwich Generation." 

This term describes individuals who are sandwiched between the dual responsibilities of raising their own children while also providing care and support for their elderly parents. It's a unique and sometimes challenging situation, and you're not alone in facing these circumstances.


What is the Sandwich Generation?

Imagine being the filling in a generational sandwich. On one side, you have your children – your dependents who need your guidance, support, and love. On the other side, you have your parents, who once provided for you but now might need assistance with everyday tasks, medical care, and emotional support. This dynamic can lead to a variety of roles, from parenting to caregiving, all while trying to maintain your own well-being.


Juggling Acts and Balancing Acts

Being a part of the Sandwich Generation often means juggling multiple roles and responsibilities – or Generation Juggling. You might be shuttling your kids to soccer practice while also making sure your parent's doctor's appointments are scheduled. 

You might be managing your household finances while helping your aging parent navigate their retirement plans. The challenges can be overwhelming, but they also present opportunities for growth, empathy, and finding creative solutions.
