July is Sandwich Generation Month

For those of you who aren’t already juggling the demands of the sandwich generation lifestyle and therefore may not be familiar with the term, the sandwich generation refers to the adult child who is trying to balance the demands of raising their children with the demands of taking care of their aging parents.

We may all feel from time to time like we don’t have enough hours in the day but the adult children in the sandwich generation truly don’t have enough hours in the day. The stress, guilt and exhaustion that can come from trying to keep so many fires burning at one time can be overwhelming. One of the messages Sandwich Generation Month promotes is that you don’t have to cope with all these demands alone. There are resources available to help you help your aging parents.

Available resources include adult day care centers where your parents can spend some supervised time socializing while you take a break. Other resources include home health and companion care companies that can send someone to your parents’ home to help with chores and errands such as cooking, cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping. Also, for the adult child themselves, there are support groups made up of others who have found themselves part of the sandwich generation and who all really do understand what your life is like and can offer suggestions, camaraderie and a little humor to help you keep your sanity.

A good place to start a search for these resources is the local Area Agency on Aging. These state agencies can be a treasure trove of information about resources available both through the community and private companies.
