Many working adults, especially the sandwiched and boomers generation feel stuck! In between raising children who are going to college, a career change or midlife crisis and at the same time having aging parents who are signaling for help.
Where do you start? How do you find your balance? Who or where do you go for the extra help or expertise you needed?
According to Census Bureau 2010:
Between 2000 and 2010, the population 45 to 64 years old grew 31.5 percent to 81.5 million. This age group now makes up 26.4 percent of the total U.S. population. The large growth among 45- to 64-year-olds is primarily because of the aging of the baby boom population. The 65-and-older population also grew faster than younger population groups at a rate of 15.1 percent to 40.3 million people, or 13.0 percent of the total population.
Those two numbers are significant to us today as we move forward. The boomers generation has grown along with their parent’s generation, those over 65 years old. Yet the resources needed have not increased with those statistics.
As you enjoy your day with friends and family on this Independence Day talking about everything under the sun, take time to evaluate your needs, your children’s needs and your elderly parent’s needs. Questions to ponder:
How can you help your aging parents?
When do they need help?
Are they within half to a one hour drive or 1000 miles from your home?
What do you need done for them?
How can you outsource help to someone you can rely and trust?
Where can you turn to?
