If you’ve heard of the “Sandwich Generation,” it could be because you are a member of it. The “Sandwich Generation” is a group of middle-aged adults who are caring for an aging parent and their own children at the same time.
This stage of life can be particularly demanding, because the needs of your parents and your children can feel overwhelming, and many in the “Sandwich Generation” feel torn in two as they try to ensure the best care for their loved ones. This is a delicate and often exhausting balance act. If not managed promptly and properly, stress can begin to build up and compound, which affects your own physical, mental, and emotional wellness.
