Life is hard for everyone. Yet, how much harder is it when you are taking care of not just yourself, but also your child(ren) and aging parent(s)? You are what we call the Sandwich Generation—men and women (usually, but not always) in their 40s and 50s who are “sandwiched” between two generations.
Let’s be honest. Even with all the advances society has made, women are usually (though not always) still the primary ones taking care of those around them who need to be nurtured and looked after. We have children later and parents who (fortunately) live longer. As a result, when we reach middle age, the very legitimate demands on our time and attention seem to speed up, rather than slow down. No doubt we need to step back and take a deep breath, but who has the time?
That is one of the reasons I started Gentle Wave Concierge Services. We want to be that “extra pair of hands” to help the Sandwich Generation find the right balance in their lives. We can help with such things as taking mom or dad to a doctor’s appointment; coordinating withutility workers, handymen or landlords; making sure the kids’ project gets to school in one piece; picking up the dry cleaning, holiday decorations, magazines, newspapers; and even balancing the checkbooks, paying invoices and dealing with postal issues. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance. Click Here!
