Post The Sandwich Generation (story of one challenged family)
(Still wish we had a "Caregiver" or "Caregiver Resources" sub-forum. There's no good place to put this post....)

Tonight I watched two online videos of 18 months of life in the sandwich generation, where a couple is caring for the wife's father (with dementia) and their two children. Both videos are worthwhile but if you only watched one I'd vote for the second video.

Post Care Giving Videos
Dear Robin,
Thank you for sharing these videos about a real family caregiving for Herbie. It shows exactly what a family has to deal with in a very difficult yet rewarding time of their lives. You are amazing with the wealth of knowledge you have about LBD and the time you take to share that knowledge with all of us. Thank you so very much!
