Griswold Home Care Supports Sandwich Generation with Webinar

Solutions for the Entire Family on July 25th at 4 PM EST during National Sandwich Generation Month

PHILADELPHIA, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- To recognize National Sandwich Generation Month, and the many challenges faced by ALL members of the multigenerational families, Griswold Home Care, a national non-medical home care company, will host a national webinar workshop on Thursday July 25th from 4-5 PM EST. This solutions-based webinar will include real stories from young adult children, dual caregivers, older adults, and Sandwich Generation experts. Register for the webinar workshop and walk away with tools that drive effective family planning, healthy transition, and positive solutions.


Never heard of the term 'Sandwich Generation?' According to Pew Research, 47% of adults aged 40-59 are in the position of tending to their career and kids while directly caring for or arranging care for their parents - hence, 'sandwiched' between two competing roles. Griswold's webinar workshop aims to challenge the traditional definition by redefining the Sandwich Generation as 'A Time of Family Transition & Reinvention.'

To be held July 25th at 4:00 PM EST, the company's free webinar workshop will be hosted by Christopher G. Kelly, Med, BA and Director of Learning and Development at Griswold Home Care. The webinar workshop will:

  1. Provide a new, more holistic perspective on the Sandwich Generation dynamic
  2. Present current needs, drivers, and barriers for young adult children, family caregivers, and grandparents
  3. Share practical strategies for driving cross-generational empathy, understanding, and communication
  4. Present a Family Solutions toolkit that drives effective planning and transition

As July marks the month of annual recognition for the Sandwich Generation, Griswold Home Care has chosen the subject as the 5th topic in its Solutions Series Program, which is an advocacy and educational program that brings existing, available tools to the surface and connects viewers with means for use. Webinar topics are inspired by Griswold's proprietary Solutions Mining (TM) methodology to identify a timely topic and create relevant, educational, and impactful monthly webinar workshops.
