Tips for those caring for both kids and parents

It’s called the “sandwich generation” – mid-career people who are caring for kids still in the house and taking on more care for their aging parents as well.

The challenges people in this situation experience are significant and can’t really be avoided – but with planning and deliberate action, you can help make them easier for everyone, including yourself.

Anyone in the sandwich generation learns quickly that the key to navigating competing needs is balance, preparation and smart compromises. And that takes experience and insight. Relationships with trusted financial, legal and personal advisors who know your family and your values can help you work through the challenges to come in a way that will be good for you and your family.
