'Sandwich Generation' Avoids Unnecessary Stress While Tending to Aging Senior Parents
Date:12/8/2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Parenting a family of any size or configuration is tough. So imagine raising two families. But the difference is that in this "second family," the parenting does not involve more children. It has to do with parenting aging senior parents.

According to William Bryan, Ph.D., cofounder of Active Seniors In Transition, the term "Sandwich Generation" is used widely today to define this particular phenomenon that affects 10 million households where an adult or adult couple is literally "stuck in the middle" between the challenges of raising their own children and parenting their aging senior parents.

This parenting of aging parents is no easy task, according to Bryan. "As life expectancy increases, aging seniors inevitably face numerous challenges ranging from financial and medical concerns to emotional troubles and diminished physical capabilities that occur as a part of the natural aging process," he said.

"It's not uncommon for these challenges to fall unexpectedly right in the laps of their sandwich generation children," added Joanne Rogovin, LCSW, Bryan's counterpart. "In most cases, these adult children simply are not the least bit prepared to handle the tasks of working through these inevitable transitions."

"As senior parents age, their adult children feel the stress of demands on their time, energy, and financial resources. They inevitably face many personal, emotional, and psychological challenges of their own as their parents transition from being active and self-sufficient to total dependence on family members," Bryan said.

While numerous books are available that speak about parenting infants, toddlers, and teenagers, there is very little information on how to parent aging parents. To answer this shortfall, Bryan and Rogovin created a new e-book entitled "How Sandwich Generation Baby Boomers Can Prepare Themselves and Their Active Senior Parents for Inevitable Transitions." Its purpose is to help families who are now or ultimately will be caught in the sandwich better navigate the stresses and challenges that will be thrust upon them.

Rogovin explained that the e-book -- that Active Seniors In Transition is offering for a limited time at no charge -- helps sandwich generation baby boomers by offering concrete guidance, ideas, and advice on how to make things easier for themselves, their children, and their siblings, as they are called upon to play a larger, more challenging role with their aging parents.

The e-book is available FREE online at http://www.ActiveSeniorsInTransition.com. For additional information, contact Joanne Rogovin at 888-556-5758 or send an email to Info@ActiveSeniorsInTransition.com.
