Presenter
Sharon Dornberg-Lee, LCSW
Clinical Supervisor, Counseling Services, CJE SeniorLife

Individuals “sandwiched” between the responsibility of aging parents and raising their children are understandably feeling stressed as they become caregivers for multiple generations.

This program will focus on self-care for the sandwich generation, with strategies to delegate tasks where possible, improve communication, and help set appropriate limits in a respectful manner.
