Carol Abaya, M.A., nationally recognized as an expert in elder/parent care and aging issues, has joined NewJerseynewsroom.com with her unique column, The Sandwich Generation (R). She is also an international-award-winning journalist.
Carol routinely appears on radio and TV programs across the country and discusses a wide range of Sandwich Generation and aging issues. She has been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, FNN, et al.
After being primary caregiver for six years for her elderly parents, Carol's objective has been to help others deal with the roller-coaster issues of aging. As more baby boomers become both sandwich generationers and seniors, the need to understand aging dynamics and family relationships as well as medical, legal and spiritual issues increases dramatically.
Carol calls being a sandwich generationer "A new role on the stage of life for which no one can every rehearse."
For 12 years, Carol wrote a weekly syndicated newspaper column, The Sandwich Generation (R), which appeared in papers from coast to coast. Carol's column will now continue to present timely and timeless information about the challenges of the sandwich generation. A new column will be posted here each week.
The full story of how Carol became an expert on elder/parent care can be read on her website www.sandwichgeneration.com, which has a link to a lengthy New York Times article.
