The Sandwich Generation Issues

It’s time for another roundup of great news items and resources to help those of us in the Sandwich Generation, juggling the multigenerational caregiving issues in our family:


Tis the season for us to be so busy with the regular issues of caregiving and kids along with the extra duties that go with buying and wrapping gifts, Christmas parties and more. That can make it easier to miss little health symptoms that could spell big problems for our aging parents. Here are three quick reference helps:

  1. Symptoms of heart attack from the NIH (National Institute of Health) BUT REALLY, IF YOU HAVE ANY SERIOUS CONCERN YOU OR A LOVED ONE ARE DEALING WITH A HEART ATTACK  – PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIVES FROM THE NIH – Call 9–1–1 for help right away if you think you or someone else may be having a heart attack. You also should call for help if your chest pain doesn’t go away as it usually does when you take medicine prescribed for angina. Do not drive to the hospital or let someone else drive you. Call an ambulance so that medical personnel can begin life-saving treatment on the way to the emergency room.
  2. Symptoms of stroke from Mayo Clinic and NIH AND AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE ANY SERIOUS CONCERN YOU OR A LOVED ONE ARE DEALING WITH A STROKE  – PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIVES FROM THE NIH – Call 9–1–1 for help right away if you believe someone is having a stroke – if he or she suddenly loses the ability to speak, or move an arm or leg on one side, or experiences facial paralysis on one side – call 911 immediately.
  3. CPR basics from the Mayo Clinic, including “hands-only CPR” which is recommended for those untrained in CPR.
