About Kaye Swain & SandwichINK

Caring for elderly parents is best with teamwork - as this shot from my easy to use digital camera reminds usHi, I’m Kaye Swain, mom, daughter, grandma, caregiver, and REALTOR®. I keep busy helping my clients and my family as many of us deal with the multigenerational issues of caring for elderly parents while raising children or babysitting grandchildren. I love sharing resources and info here at SandwichINK, as well as other sites around the “blog-o-sphere” such as SandwichINK Real Estate Info, KayeSwain.com, and KayeSwainRealEstate.com  :) 

My senior mom loves her Jitterbug - considers them the best cell phones for senior citizens - she got a big smile when I told her I was going to use a photo of hers to help the grandkids with their Bible Memory verses for the children

Here I share stories, ideas, and resources that I’ve accumulated over the years of helping my elderly parents and babysitting my grandkids. There are fun ideas for educational and creative activities for kids and seniors. Everything from making Resurrection Easter Eggs from their old LEGOs to fun with phonics resources and activities to great Wii games for kids and us boomers and seniors. Not to mention outside activities like playing all kinds of tag, baseball, and more. With a ton of grandkids of all ages, from babies up to teens, I definitely enjoy finding and sharing fun and creative ideas and resources for all of us to use, including those of us involved in helping with homeschooling projects!

Love this sunflower and loved the Sunflower House activities for grandparents and their grandchildren - in all seasons of lifeThe Sandwich Generation season can be a joy-filled and rewarding season of life. Unfortunately, the sad reality is that it can also includes seasons of grief and loss and I am blessed to be sharing encouraging and comforting Bible verses for all of us boomers and seniors, as well as uplifting Bible verses for our children and grandchildren- such a wonderful way of leaving a sweet spiritual legacy!

I love to join in holiday and specialty blog parties and memes and share them with you, like 

Lisa’s Grand Social for Grandparents

Charlotte’s Spiritual Sunday Encouragement

Beverly’s Pink Saturday


A Panda is cute but a Webkinz Panda is one of those stuffed animals that is cute and a gift that will be fun and educational for your grandchildren all year long

Holiday party blog fun is big around here as well. I LOVE celebrating holidays, like the Valentine’s Day party blog fun along with Christmas get-togethers including the Holiday Progressive Blog Party at Caregiving.com. And we also have plenty of non-Holiday fun like the annual and Ultimate Blog Party!

I generally blog two – four times a month here but you’ll also find daily updates at my Twitter siteand they’re embedded in the right column, along with various updates at my SandwichINK Facebook page. You’ll definitely find a wealth of useful information, resources, and Christian encouragement for all the multigenerational issues impacting so many of us baby boomers and seniors, here at SandwichINK, giving you a terrific “Sandwich Break,” in your week. And yes, the majority of all posts at SandwichINK are written by Kaye Swain – though you will also find occasional guest posts from excellent resources. :)
