I’m a baby boomer and definitely a member of the sandwich generation. The mother of three adult children, my husband John and I have been married for 40 years. Chicago born and raised, my various careers include high school English teacher, writer and copyeditor for two publishing companies, and registered nurse in women’s health. I am passionate about healthcare for women, children and the elderly. My 95-year-old mother suffers from dementia.

Concerned about any snag in the fabric of life that affects my children and grandchildren, I find myself racing along the boomer highway, trying to slow it down. If we talk and share we can turn this sandwich generation into an elegant brioche. Please join me. Please comment. I’m here to listen, learn from you, and help you. I’ll post once or twice a week and offer to do research for your personal concerns.
