The Sandwich Generation

NPR recently started a series called Family Matters, in which they focus on the financial pressures faced by the "sandwich generation," baby boomers who are finding themselves caring both for their aging "greatest generation" parents as well as their "boomerang generation" children.

The  series' focus is on the financial situations of the profiled families, but an intertwined subject is the cost of caring for an aging parent.  And related still are the emotional and psychological stresses that having a parent in your home causes, as well as the benefits it can bring.

It should be a great series and I encourage you to follow it.
