The Beginning, Our Story
Our Story–The Jam Sandwich
The term “Sandwich Generation” refers to parents caring for their elder parents with children still living at home. Our children are grown with their own families in another state. However, because we live with and care for my parents our travel is limited and we are seldom able to visit our kids and grandkids. At this time, I can’t leave home at all unless a caregiver is present. No overnight trips are possible. In that sense we are caught in the middle much like the group usually called “Sandwichers”—so I am co-opting the name.
