It’s Scott Brubacher here with our Boomers on the Move workshop! Are you part of the sandwich generation? If you fit into it, you are one of many adults who are caring for older relatives and children at the same time. It not only affects our Baby Boomer audience (59-77). But their Gen X children (40-58) as well. Looking at the numbers, that means 57% of the population has a parent aged 65+ that they’re supporting financially, emotionally, etc At the same time while supporting a minor/adult child. This caregiving role can be tough on its own. But when you add your career and financial concerns to the mix, it can feel like you’re barely keeping your head above water.

The Sandwich Generation Guest Panel Discussion
How do you go about starting the conversation with your aging parents? “Decide what your intention is and come from love. You’ll have to be an assertive communicator to present your case, and it’s important to communicate a vision of what life could look like if they decided to age in place or make the move to a retirement home. Do your research in advance so you can come into the conversation ready to answer questions!”
How does one get started and get over the fear they have moving forward?
