No free lunch for the sandwich generation
Abstract: The sandwich generation is the name given to people caught in the middle between caring for elderly parents or in-laws and raising young, and sometimes not-so-young, children. And, of course, they still have to handle their own affairs. This article explains how to develop a comprehensive estate plan that accommodates the needs of all the parties by approaching the situation in a logical and organized manner. As the main article mainly focuses on dealing with elderly parents, a sidebar explores ideas on how to accommodate child-related needs.
