The Sandwich Generation Caregiver: Support for those caring for both older and younger generations

Instructor: Mary Doane

Dates and Times:
April 27, 2022 (12:15-1:00pm PT)

Improvements in medicine and increasing life expectancy, combined with the pressure and uncertainties of an ongoing pandemic, make it even more common for family caregivers to find they are Sandwich Generation Caregivers – caring for an elderly parent or relative, while also raising and caring for children of any age. This can be rewarding, challenging, and exhausting – an experience brimming with strong emotions.

In this free 45-minute session, Mary Doane will provide approaches and practices to support you when you are in this situation. Drawing from her own experience as a Sandwich Generation Caregiver, Mary shares how the use of mindfulness, compassion, and clear boundaries can shift how you feel about your role, how you act within it and how you care for yourself in addition to others.
