Those Baby Boomers sandwiched between the need to care for their dependent children and the responsibility of caring for their older parents. As noted by social researcher Mark McCrindle (www.mccrindle.com.au), this sandwich generation arises from the combined trends of delayed childbirth, the delayed financial independence of children, and the increasing life expectancy of the older generation.
