White Plains, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
The month of July is not only the month we celebrate our National Independence, it is also a month to celebrate the many Americans who find themselves as part of the Sandwich Generation, those sandwiched between their own children and their aging parents who need care and/or help.
Sandwich Generation Month is a month of awareness to commemorate and celebrate the dedication and patience of this generation who care for their own children as well as their aging parents. It’s a daunting task at times! According to the Pew Research Center just over 1 of every 8 Americans aged 40 to 60 is both raising a child and caring for a parent, in addition to between 7 to 10 million adults caring for their aging parents from a long distance. The Sandwich Generation is a large group!
Lifefone honors these dedicated folks! Their tireless efforts, long hours, selfless acts of love and dedication to family is remarkable and often goes unnoticed. Follow Lifefone on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/LifeFone), Twitter, or our blog, Caregiver Connections at Lifefoneblog.com as we provide updates on events, share news and stories on caring for parents, children and self.
