In honor of National Caregivers month, this column is based on report published by Pew Research Center. It describes the sandwich generation. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, approximately one-quarter of the caregivers are considered the “sandwich generation”

Pew Research Center explains that adults who are part of the sandwich generation—that is, those who have a living parent age 65 or older and are either raising a child underage 18 or supporting a grown child—are pulled in many directions. Not only do many provide care and financial support to their parents and their children, but nearly four-in-10 (38%) say both their grown children and their parents rely on them for emotional support.
