Across America, families daily struggle to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member. These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation," and they are growing in record numbers. That's because America is aging in record numbers.
Soon, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20- to-35-year-olds. Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives. But the numbers also tell another story. More and more adult children need help caring for their aging parents. These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken.
