Empowering the Sandwich Generation, One Bite at a Time
Are you sandwiched between two different priorities as you manage your own life while caring for an aging parent or relative? This one hour version of a longer workshop offered this fall through the Personal and Cultural Enrichment Program (PACE) aims to inform those caught in the Sandwich Generation between the diverse needs of aging parents/relatives and children and their own lives. Led by Kelly Howarth, M.Ed., we will discuss solutions to the challenges of being part of the Sandwich Generation. This session will appeal to anyone currently sandwiched as we explore:
The phenomenon of being sandwiched (aging process, developmental issues and stages and the associated diseases).
Initiating important conversations with your aging relative/family member about “What if…?”
Getting into the driver’s seat with your aging relative and planning for “What if…?”
The squeaky wheel: becoming an advocate and mentor for your aging relative.
Linking with local support services and managing the stress of care-giving: essential self-care.
Balancing needs through delegating.
