The Sandwich Generation is the term used for people who are both caring for children and at least one elderly relative. The demands of providing this kind of continuous care for loved ones can lead to anxiety, depression, and physical health problems, so having a support system and other resources, such as help with Alzheimer’s care, is essential.
Watch this video to learn more about the pressures faced by those in the Sandwich Generation. For the caregivers who find themselves in this position, relying on the resources that are available through assisted living and other care services is an important step in managing the demands.
