You may say, ‘What is Sandwich Generation?” let us explain. Have you ever felt “sandwiched” between the pressures of caring for an older parent and raising your own family?If so, you are part of a unique group of people known as the “Sandwich Generation.” These are adults who are juggling the roles of caring for their own families (including minor children) and aging parents at the same time. The emotional, physical and financial strains experienced by those in the Sandwich Generation can be overwhelming and paralyzing and perhaps you don’t know where to turn for answers.
While life may seem overwhelming and chaotic at the moment, turning the tables and gaining the upper hand again concerning your parents’ care is easier than you think. Solid legal planning is the key to helping your parents receive the best care possible without sacrificing your own family’s financial security. Remember, sickness, memory loss or incapacity from a stroke or other condition can happen without warning. Don’t wait to get a rock-solid plan in place to protect your parents and make your job as a caregiver as easy as possible.
To bring awareness to the Sandwich Generation the Estate Planning Law Center is hosting a special Sandwich Generation Workshop in conjunction with “How To Protect Your Stuff in 3 Easy Steps” on Wednesday, July 20th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm outdoors at the Sherrill Brook Park in New Hartford, NY. Bringing your family and friends is encouraged. There will be sandwiches for everyone and you can enjoy an interactive workshop that will help get your questions answered. Register online at EPLawCenter.com or call 793-3622. If you want to learn more about the Sandwich Generation, materials are available for download at EPLawCenter.com.
