It was 2015. I was a full time working Mom of two high school students – one getting ready for college and the other just starting her high school years.
Meanwhile, I was also caring for both parents who were over 80 and living in an Assisted Living facility. I was a poster child for the Sandwich Generation – one of many adults in the world who have children living in their homes, and who are also caring for an aging parent.
Like the “protein” in the middle of a big, juicy sandwich, I was squeezed!
A 2014 Pew Research Study (in the United States) suggested that about 47% of Americans are in this situation, and rates are rising rapidly due to adults living longer and the large Baby Boomer Generation beginning to retire.
Boomers represent one of the largest generations and a group who have always shaken up the status quo! As they approach retirement, they are at it again. Now is the time to start conversations about family, caregiving, and how we view this next wave.
I coach caregivers to manage the overwhelm and chaos so they can show up joyfully for themselves and those they love most!
My Sandwich Generation coaching focuses on building a Legacy of Love.
