The Sandwich Generation

Written by Tim Lambert, witf Multimedia News Director | Mar 3, 2011 6:50 PM

Couples across the midstate are facing the sometimes difficult task of caring for their parents and raising their children. Dubbed the Sandwich Generation, they find themselves facing additional stresses on their daily lives, from coping with aging parents to planning for retirement to making sure their kids get the attention they need. All this month, WITF’s multimedia series, Real Life | Real Issues, will look at how the Sandwich Generation adjusts to life in a multi-generational household. Central PA Magazine kicks things off with the article, "Practical Caregiving." If you are part of this group of families, please feel free to share your story in our comments section.
