New help announced for the sandwich generation

With more than one million people spending more than 50 hours per week caring for family members who cannot look after themselves, the Government has acknowledged those contributions by requiring councils to arrange support such as short “respite” holidays, assistance with transport or training in care techniques.  This will be of particular help to the “sandwich generation,” those who are caring for their elderly parents while supporting and caring for children and or grandchildren.  A full article is available in The Daily Telegraph.
