If you’re a member of the “sandwich generation” – adults who are caring for both their own young children and their elderly parents – then you’re no doubt familiar with the challenges and conflicts that arise on a monthly, weekly, even daily basis. You’ve somehow got to make it to your son’s school play and mom’s doctor appointment at the same time. Your high school-aged daughter needs to borrow the car to go out with friends, but dad also needs a ride to his book club. You have to pick up prescriptions, haggle with mom’s insurance company, and drop the kids off at soccer practice right after work – oh, and somehow feed everybody dinner, too.
