August is Sandwich Generation Month…

I’m sure many of you are thinking about your pastrami on rye while others are saying “huh”?!

Before you go on indulging in your favorite lunchtime meal, let me explain the true meaning of “sandwich generation month”.

Sandwich Generation Month symbolizes the dedication, patience and caring of adults who are part of the sandwich generation – those caring for their children as well as their own aging parents.

Being a member of the “sandwich generation” can be both very rewarding and daunting. There are so many day to day trials that go along with caring for an aging relative. Though there are many families in this situation one can still feel very desolate. It is important to realize that you are not alone! There are numerous other families in the same situation.
There are also several online resources and books that can offer support for those who are part of the Sandwich Generation.
