KARE 11 Sandwich Generation

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. on KARE-11

The Sandwich Generation is a group of people, usually in their 30s, 40s or 50s, who are raising younger children and caring for elderly parents at the same time.

Caring for an elderly parent while raising children can be overwhelming – making sure everyone is at the right place at the right time and has what they need. Sometimes, there is a role reversal between the older parent and the adult child, which can be difficult.

The Minnesota Board on Aging and the Area Agencies on Aging have partnered with KARE-11 to discuss and explore the issues the Sandwich Generation faces every day in the weekly segment, The Sandwich Generation airing Tuesdays at 11 a.m.

With help from the Senior LinkAge Line®, a free service of the Minnesota Board on Aging, those in the Sandwich Generation can connect with local aging experts to get the help and resources they need on a variety of aging-related topics. The Senior LinkAge Line® - 800.333.2433 - can help with: Medicare, housing options, applications long-term care planning, caregiving and so much more.
