It’s a term that I find extremely accurate and descriptive once you understand the context in which it’s used. So what exactly does it mean?
The Sandwich Generation is a generation of people who care for their aging parents while supporting their own children.
Dorothy A. Miller coined the term “sandwich generation” back in 1981, and Carol Abaya has continued to study and expose what it means to millions of Americans.
Carol Abaya, M.A., is nationally recognized as an expert on the sandwich generation, aging and elder/parent care issues. As a journalist, she has written about aging issues for more than 20 years. Her magazine, The Sandwich Generation®.
· Club Sandwich: those in their 50s or 60s sandwiched between aging parents, adult children and grandchildren, or those in their 30s and 40s, with young children, aging parents and grandparents.
· Open Faced: anyone else involved in elder care.
Merriam-Webster and Oxford English officially added the term to their dictionaries in 2006, and Carol also coined the words “club sandwich generation” and “open face sandwich generation.”
With all of the definitions and persons responsible for coining the terms aside, what does this term mean to you? If you are a part of The Sandwich Generation, you know that it means you are playing a huge game of tug-o-war. It’s a tug-o-war between your aging parents and your children for your time, care, love and attention. And, that doesn’t even go into the stress that comes with caring for your loved ones financially.
Sellers who have move in condition properties that are priced right are finding their homes selling quickly for top dollar, and many are having the problem of multiple offers to choose from.
