An increasing number of Americans are living in what is being called the "Sandwich Generation," with responsibilities for both their parents and their children.
The Pew Research Center says nearly half of American adults in their 40s and 50s have a parent who's 65 or older, while either raising a young child, or financially supporting a grown child.
The National Center on Caregiving says 75 percent of sandwich generation caregivers are women.
Most work full time, and many routinely neglect their own needs.
There are resources out there that can help those that are in the "Sandwich Generation."
With those needing help planning for the future, the Seniors Resource Hub gives information about health and living arrangements for Americans that are getting older.
