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:
The Sandwich Generation Issues
A very interesting “birds eye view” into the Sandwich Generation issues and lifestyle in Australia: “‘Baby boomers are feeling the squeeze, with children and parents coming home to roost,’ writes Julie Power.” Hmmm, sounds just like in the USA, and most likely, all around the world.
For those overseeing aging parents with Alzheimers Disease and dementia symptoms living in a care facility, telephone conversations can be quite difficult, can’t they? I thought Talking On The Phone Can Be Challenging was an interesting article at “We Were Five – Our Journey With Alzhiemers” that included a couple of tips for how to deal with that.
ElderLawAnswers has an excellent reminder that if we are hiring caregivers to help our elderly parents at home, it’s vital to check out the companies we use in the article, Home Care Agencies Hiring Unqualified Caregivers, Study Finds.
Grandparents and Grandkids
Some of our grandkids have started, or are starting back to school already. Others have a few more weeks of boredom…err, blissdom. Whatever the case, if you’d like some fun, creative, and educational ideas to spur them on, check out these fun ideas with spaghetti – I’ve tried simple variations with my grand-toddler who wasn’t interested. But you should see the works of art an older grandchild made! Very cool!
And when y’all are done with the fun projects, how about a tasty and healthy and VERY cute treat, like Sacramento’s Sidetracked Sarah shares with us. A fun treat for all ages – including our sweet elderly parents.
