July marks the mid-point of the year, smack in the middle of South Florida’s steamy and humid summer season. Traditionally, this more languid time of year brings a slower pace, vacations, and time to recharge.

However, for many middle-aged individuals who provide cross-generation caregiving for their parents, children, and/or young adults the demands and stress continue full steam ahead without a break.

Besides July being dedicated as Sandwich Generation Month”, the juggling act continues for the one out of eight Americans between the ages of 40 to 60 who are the bridge between the younger and older generations. And that number is expected to rise as baby boomers edge toward retirement age and life expectancy of the elderly climbs.
