The Sandwich Generation. You may have never heard of it, but we bet you know someone who has experienced it. The Sandwich Generation is defined by the circumstance of financially and physically providing care for a someone older than them (typically a parent, grandparent, older spouse, or an older family member) while at the same time providing financial, physical or emotional care for a someone that’s younger than them (typically a grown child, a grandchild, or a younger sibling).
In this podcast, we discuss at length ways to help prevent the very serious challenges of being sandwiched financially, emotionally, and sometimes even physically by your family and loved ones.
Are you a caregiver? Are you age 40-59? Do you have children? Are your parents still alive? You don’t want to miss this one. We’re talking to you.
