HealthSmart: Sandwiched

Written by Keira McGuire, witf Producer and Host | May 25, 2016 1:32 PM

Today, almost half of Americans in their fourties and fifties are sandwiched, or in other words, have a parent 65 or older and are either raising young kids or financially supporting a grown child.  It can be a tough job but it's one that more and more people are taking on.

Caregiving for an aging loved one can be stressful, emotional and physical.  But caring for both an aging loved one and children only compounds that stress and the emotional and physical strain.

On HealthSmart: Sandwiched we'll talk about why so many are involved in multigenerational care and what challenges they face.  Plus, we'll offer tips for taking care of the one person who often slips through the cracks - the caregiver.
