Baby Boomer and Senior Citizen News is an important part of SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation sIt's been another grand and BUSY week full of excellent and interesting resources and info for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, juggling the varied issues that come with caring for our aging parents while raising children or babysitting our grandchildren. Check these out: 

The Sandwich Generation Issues

This week's #ElderCareChat, Quality of Life for Caregivers, in addition to being very informative as always, really touched on many of the multigenerational caregiving issues we so often deal with. You can find the recap at Seniors For Living along with the link to the full transcript. 

Our #ElderCareChat touched on this a bit, so I was interested to notice this article from Time Healthland, "Can Caring for Your Aging Parents Hurt Your Career — or Your Paycheck? Helpful tips on how to be there for your ill and aging parents, while protecting your job and the financial well-being of you and your family"

Are you feeling your age? Let me tell you, many times when I climb the stairs I gallop up them. But there are plenty of times when I climb them when I feel every single day of my life and then some! Here's some intriguing poems to remind us we're not alone in that!

My senior mom and I have continued enjoying our iPad Adventures! Have you seen my updated page on our latest app at Squidoo? What do you think?
