Some of you may be finding yourself caught between managing two generations of loved ones. If so, welcome to the Sandwich Generation.
It's not really something that one enters into at will, but more like a bog that sucks you in without any foreseeable way out. You may still have young adult children living with you (who can afford real estate these days?) requiring your support with the daily "concerns of life" AND you have ageing parents who are slowly finding their independence disappearing.
Meanwhile you still have an active career, a household to take care of and some semblance of a social life to juggle. The Sandwich Generation is stuck right in the middle of two very needy groups of people and there doesn't seem to be anyone else to step in to help ~ yikes!
What can you do?? Well, remember to take care of yourself and ask for help. Watch the video below for more tips on surviving this stage of life!
