Are you part of the Sandwich Generation?

A new report yesterday called Future Identities, produced by the Government, predicts that a quarter of families by 2022 will be in the situation of caring both for elderly relatives and young children Рa situation caused by having children late in life. I went to see a couple the other day who had one year old twins and a parent with dementia who lived two hundred miles away Рthe result, the father spent an inordinate amount of time on the M4 in a state of suppressed panic. Does this sound familiar to you? Get in touch at eleanor.mills@sunday-times.co.uk  and tell me your stories. Best Eleanor
