Should you take your dad to the doctor or pick up your daughter at school? Do you check on your mom who isn’t feeling well or watch your son’s soccer game?
These are the kinds of challenges you face when you care for aging parents and your kids too. If you’re trying to do both things, you’re part of what’s called the sandwich generation. And along with caring for everybody else, you’ve got to take care of yourself. If you don’t, you’ll wear yourself out. You might even get sick.
