"Sandwich Generation" faces double stressors

Middle-age adults that are caring for their aging parents as well as their children, face daily pressures that can be intense, says Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White.  They are known as the Sandwich Generation and are from 35 to 54 years of age.  Dr. White notes they are caught between two responsibilities while trying to maintain careers, healthy marriages, further their education, and pursue other interests.  The emotional impact can be intense, besides dealing with medical, legal, and financial issues. 

 

 

Dr. White adds that although many caregivers caught in the middle can find it very rewarding, many feel pressured beyond the ability to cope.  You can listen to Dr. White’s entire Mental Health Minute below.
