The Sandwich Generation Roundup: Resources for Multigenerational Caregivers

by Kaye Swain

SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation is a finalist in the SeniorHomes 2013 Best Senior Living Awards - in the category of Best Boomer ResourcesLots of grand and interesting news of interest for multigenerational caregivers can be found on the web this week. To start with, SeniorHomes.com announced their top winners of resources for caregivers. At their website, you'll find many excellent places to visit for all types of caregiving help (including SandwichINK for best boomer resources :) ). And again, THANK YOU for your votes for this.

There's also been a couple of fascinating ElderCareChats on Twitter this month. Two weeks ago, it was on the topic of Advocating for Quality Care. This week, it was Mental Health & Aging Issues. The two links will lead to recaps of each chat. I always find interesting and useful information in these twitterchats and think you will as well.

Follow SandwichINK at Twitter for great resources for the Sandwich Generation including ElderCareChat and TalkAlz tweet chats

Also, be sure to check out my latest guest post at ElderCareABC, 6 Tips To Remove Some of the Stress From A Stress Test

Alzheimer's Reading Room is always an excellent resource and there are two articles that seemed especially interesting this week – Test Your Memory for Alzheimer's (5 Best Tests) and What’s the Difference Between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

Definitely a great round up of resources for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, helping us in caring for our aging parents.
