Stop Holiday Stress: Helping Sandwiched Non Medical Senior Care Providers Find the Balance


Stop Holiday Stress: Helping Sandwiched Non Medical Senior Care Providers Find the Balance

Traditionally, the term “sandwich generation” is used to define those who have a living parent and are either supporting an adult child or raising a child under age 18. However, the term has recently been mapped onto British Columbia’s senior care conundrum as a means of understanding Canadians’ conflicting care duties.

For our purposes, the “sandwich generation” refers to British Columbia adults responsible for raising children or supporting adult children while simultaneously taking responsibility for their parents’ homecare. A large percentage of these individuals are also juggling work, households, finances, and social lives, which makes for a pretty big “sandwich” situation–or maybe more of a panini, as we’re flattened by the pressure!

Of course, the holidays only make more of a mess of things. Suddenly you’re being pulled ten different directions–work parties, family holiday functions, Christmas shopping, charity work–and trying to manage your schedule alongside those of your kids and parents.

But are members of the “sandwich generation” doomed to unhappy holidays seasons that feel more stressed than blessed? No!

ABC BC Canada’s non medical senior care services are designed to stop holiday stress and help informal caregivers find the balance. We offer flexible, customizable care solutions that fit any budget.

Here’s just a few of the ways we can help:
