Sandwiched!

Kate Jones

Do you sometimes feel so trapped in the middle between your children, work, home, activities, and aging parents?  You are not alone! 

Deinition: SANDWICH GENERATION: Those sandwiched between aging parents who need care and/or help, and their own children.

The Profile: 

  • Represent 22.9 million households (21% of US)

  • 1 of every 8 baby boomers are raising a child AND providing some form of support to a parent

  • 59% of caregivers work either full time or part time

  • Typically spends more than 20 hours a week providing care

Care Recipient Profile:

  • 80% are 50 years or older; average age is 66 years old, typically female widowers

  • 75% of care recipients do not live with a caregiver, 55% live in their own home

Caregiver Needs:

  • Finding time for oneself

  • Managing emotional/physical stress

  • Balancing work and family responsibilities

  • Helping to keep te person they care for safe.

Remember, you can't help anyone if you don't take care of you first!

  • Keep the "law of 7's in mind

    • 7 hours of sleep each night

    • 7 glasses of water

    • 7 miles of exercise a week

  • Eat right!  When we are stressed or rushed, we either skip meals or eat unhealthy food on the road.  Don't do that!

    • Publix, Kroger, Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes etc. have healthy foods that are pre-packaged for meals on the go like apple slices, pre-made salads, and sandwiches

    • Eat protein for breakfast!  It will sustain you longer through the day.

  • Keep up your own health and wellness plan

    • Regular doctor and dental appointments

    • If you're sick, take time off and get well

  • Continue those things that are important to you being you

    • THIS IS YOUR LIFE!!! Don't forget that!

    • Keep running or playing tennis or reading or going to concerts

    • Keep your dates with your spouse and friends

  • ASK FOR HELP

    • You can't do it alone.  No one expects you to but you.  Let go!

    • Delegate

    • Appreciate the help that is offered and accept it

    • Remember, sometimes people don't know what to offer, so they say, "is there anything I can do for you?"  It is a sincere question.  The answer is "YES!"  Let them help you

    • Hire respite help.  Professional companies help for a reason-we love it!  And we are good at it!  If you need a night off, or a week off, or an hour off, just call.  There's help!
