Information table at library in BG
to focus on ‘Sandwich Generation’
On Saturday, an information table will be displayed in front of the Wood County District Public Library
to commemorate and celebrate the dedication, patience and caring of adults who are part of the Sandwich
It is part of Sandwich Generation Month, with its goal of raising awareness of the resources available to
those who are "sandwiched" between the needs of their growing family and aging parents.
One of every eight Americans aged 40 to 60 is both raising a child and caring for a parent, according to
the Pew Research Center. Between 7 to 10 million adults are caring for their aging parents from a long
distance, the center reported.
