Caregiving is hard. Whether you’re caring for children or aging parents (or both), the possibility of caregiver burnout is real. Members of the sandwich generation — those caring for both parents and children — need help and resources.
In this section, we provide advice on handling the day-to-day challenges, such as finding social services for the elderly, as well as information on end-of-life topics such as end-of-life care and what to do in the final hours of a living. In our stories about caregiving, caregivers can find many ways to get help and support, see where you land on the caregiver burnout scale and find resources to help you cope.
