Are you taking care of aging parents while raising young adults? You're part of the "sandwich generation" and it's a difficult role.
Not only do many of you provide care (and money), but nearly half of you say that your grown children -- and your parents -- rely on you for emotional support.
A two-week workshop will equip you for the challenges ahead.
Hear from two experts, Ashley Brooks of Caregiving Corner and Marc Rizzo, a therapist specializing in couple and family communication issues.
Week One: Learn new, effective ways to communicate with your young adult(s) and aging parent(s).
Week Two: Plan ahead for common scenarios involving your parents such as health care, living arrangements and finances.
