Pressures on the Sandwich Generation

futurelab default header

I just received an e-mail promoting a new book about the issues facing the Sandwich Generation, when needing to provide or access care for their parents (Sustenance and Hope for Caregivers of Elderly Parents).


This is becoming a major concern for large numbers of people in their 50s and 60s so I would expect this will not be the last book published on the subject.
Just before reading the e-mail I was looking at a report on the BBC web site about a small up-turn in house sales in the UK. The theme of the report was that “Bank Mum and Dad” is responsible for funding a large number of the first time buyer sales.
This is what the estate agent (Realator) said.
