The Sandwich Generation
What IS the Sandwich Generation? Well, to sum it up, it’s adults in their mid-thirties through sixties that are busy taking care of their own children, while their parents end up needing the same type of help.
This can be a really stressful time of life for the children of an Elderly parent. There are many ways that we can reduce stress around this time and situation. Today, we’ll focus on an easier route we’ve created for these families at Fairbrook Grove Assisted Living Home in Mesa AZ.
