Kathleen Kelly, executive director of Family Caregiver Alliance, speaks with Sheliah Kast of Inside E Street, an informative half-hour talk show that looks at the latest developments affecting economic security, health care and retirement.
The topic is the Sandwich Generation, predominantly Boomer woman in their mid 40′s who are juggling full time work, children and caring for and older parent or family relative.
Some of the main points that Ms. Kelly covers in this video are:
- A social worker or care manager can be a vital resource for family caregivers
- Availability of services, care networks, and connection to other caregivers and family members can relieve caregiver stress, burnout, and depression.
- Looking to the future, sandwich generation family caregivers can take the lessons they learn now and apply them to their own aging and future care needs.
