2009 was a very busy year for news and 2010 doesn't look like there will be any kind of a slow down! From terrorism in the air to swine flu to the latest info on medications for Alzheimer's Disease, keeping tabs on the news is important for the Sandwich Generation. The problem is finding the time to keep up with all that is going on in between senior home care giving, grandparenting, and living life in general! My senior mom reads the newspaper daily and loves it. I'm staying so busy, I prefer a quicker way to scan the headlines.

My favorite resource continues to be the Drudge Report, however it only gives major headlines, and doesn't stay on top of those as much as I'd like on the weekends. CNN used to be my second favorite news site however they recently upgraded their website. Their changes have led to a site that is flashier, yet lighter on the news headlines. Their site is no longer a good option for me for a speedy news check. I finally decided to search for another option and found my solution just a Google away – literally! In addition to all the other great tools Google offers, they also have a news tool. By going to, you can either read the generic news options available or you can sign in to Google in order to personalize your very own news site.

I'm not going to tell you it's the easiest process, or the fastest, but with a bit of patience on a quiet New Year's weekend, you can have your own personalized news site up fairly quickly. Here's what I put together:

SandwichINK Google News - Health Issues for Elderly Parents and their Caregivers
If you can read the words, you might notice two categories that are a bit unusual. Sandwich Generation and Health Issues for Elderly Parents and their Caregivers were topics I created. If you are interested in either of those, I believe you can select "create a custom section" and type each of those titles into the box, "Search for Sections."  It should then pull those topics up for you as welI.

If you give Google News a try, or have already created your own news site there, I'd love to hear what your favorite categories are and if you've created any special topics of interest to the Sandwich Generation. Be sure to sign up for the SandwichINK free email so you don't miss any info or resources for Sandwich Generation senior home care givers and grandparents coming your way in 2010. And have a blessed and beautiful New Year! 🙂l.
