It has become a fact of life, especially as life expectancy has increased dramatically in modern times, that people often find themselves in the situation of needing to care of aging parents. While for the vast majority of us, this is very much an act of love and gratefulness, it is not without its challenges to be sure.

It can be even more complicated for the many, like my wife and I, who are part of what has become known as the “sandwich generation”, meaning those who are still caring for children at home while simultaneously providing care and assistance to parents.
