Who is taking care of the caretakers?
This week’s Fiscal Feminist podcast revisits the complex and demanding issues facing the “sandwich generation”. Many of us are “sandwiched” between the emotional and financial needs of our aging parents and the demands of raising younger children or financially supporting to some extent grown children. Add work responsibilities to the mix and it makes for a sometimes heavy load to carry. Trevor Cummings, my partner, and colleague at The Bahnsen Group, interviews me on the topic focusing on the emotional, psychological, and financial demands of elderly caregiving of our loved ones and the strategy for being prepared for it so you aren’t blindsided by the impact of it. It’s an honest discussion of my journey with caregiving from the emotional toll to the financial impact.
