OHEL Caregiving Evening- Addresses Needs of the Sandwich Generation
On Shabbos June 15th, Harriet Blank, OHEL's Director of Geriatric Services, addressed an audience of over 70 people at the Young Israel of Bedford Bay, with the topic â€śCaregiving for our parents in the sandwich generationâ€ť. The Sandwich generation is a term used to describe a generation of people who care for their aging parents, while simultaneously supporting their own children.
Harriet discussed caregiving tips, stress tips, and information on caring for your parents while juggling other responsibilities. The audience asked Harriet many questions about caregiving as well as other topics, and she was able to make everybody in the audience feel comfortable.
OHEL hosts seminars and discussions for all types of families and needs, and is planning a similar workshop for sandwich generation caregivers in the Young Israel of Woodmere.
