According to Little, more families will be affected by this trend as baby boomers age and need more assistance. Little will share her insight on this topic during SLUCare's For Your Health seminar on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
The sandwich generation often face time management and financial challenges, as they try to balance their career and taking care of their own children and their aging parents.
"It is important to establish goals upfront to make sure that everyone's desires are met," said Little. "Establishing a social support network can help everyone adjust to the transition."
"Parent Trap: Caring for the Aging Parent" will start at 6:30 p.m. at the Lodge Des Peres, located at 1050 Des Peres Road. An RSVP is required for this seminar.
Additional materials on this subject will be available at the lecture.
