 Sandwich Generation

As the aging population increases, adult children are finding themselves embarking upon the responsibility of caring for their aging parent or parents. This task has become challenging for the adult children due to the fact that many are still continuing to provide care for their own children and are actively immersed in their careers. The populations facing this situation have now been identified as the “sandwich generation”. Being a sandwich generation caregiver is not a situation that adult children often prepare for. Although the seed may be planted within one’s mind, the actual evolution of the obligation over time may become overwhelming. Understanding and identifying the effects of this new added responsibility and the comprehension on how it impacts the sandwich generation caregiver is critical, not only for the well-being of the caregiver, but on the entire family structure.

Sanders gave vision to the “Caregiver Identity Theory”, the summarization of the caregivers’ role emerging from selfappraisal on the belief of what the initial caregiver expectations were. The need for realistic self-appraisal and the need to reinforce positive appraisal is imperative for the sandwich generation. Having multiple responsibilities at the same time, places the sandwich generation caregiver at an increased risk for undesirable outcomes. Interventions ensuring support and a reduction in stress include teamwork/mutual support, fostering open communication, encouraging caregiver self-care, providing information, and referrals as need for resources
