Sandwich Generation

sandwichAre you part of the “sandwich generation”? Are you between 40 and 60? Supporting a child while caring for a parent, at home or from afar?
Well, I’m just about there. I’m 46, I have a child at home and my parents are beginning to need more of my time. As the owner of A Hand at Home, ¬†you might think I’d know all the ins and outs of senior care. On one level I do, but when it comes to the delicate issue of helping my own parents, I’m right with everyone else.
Through my work I’ve found that most parents don’t want to be a burden to their children, but we kids need to know what’s going on and how to help. Right?
Try to sit down and have those personal talks as soon as you can. Find out where things stand and how your folks want issues to be handled should their circumstances change.
You don’t have to do it all alone, we’re here should you need some help. If you live far from your family, an agency like mine can take away a lot of worry. Give it a try and good luck, 530-545-0780

Where to begin

People tell me all the time how stressed out they feel when it comes to the care of a spouse or other family member. They know they need help but have no idea where to start. The first step is as easy as making a call. The first person you talk to when calling an in home care agency should be able to answer all sorts of questions and get you headed in the right direction.

In home care is not always the answer and a good care coordinator can help you find that out.

Call Cherri she’s terrific! Her experience and knowledge of issues concerning seniors and healing are unequaled.

It’s a simple step that doesn’t cost a penny, 530-545-0780, but it it’s worth millions.
