With responsibility for taking care of aging parents while also raising a family, Generation X is feeling the squeeze of being a “sandwich generation.” This can be especially stressful when two thirds of Generation X say they haven’t fully recovered from the Great Recession, yet an increasing number are providing financial support for both their children and their parents. And even if elderly parents don’t require financial help, most will need assistance with managing assets, estate planning, and living arrangements. In the latest episode of the IRC WealthCast, the first in a two-part series, I joined Joe Schum and Michelle Thompson, a financial planner and attorney. We shared our personal stories of dealing with aging parents, dementia, forgotten assets, powers of attorney, and blended families, all while juggling our own demanding careers and immediate family obligations.
