Unwrapping the Sandwich Generation is a collection of vignettes that address senior concerns and how their adult children address those concerns. You won't find any instructions telling you how to ""do"" anything. You will read stories about real people and real events. You will see that other folks, just like you, experience what you are experiencing; you are not alone. Read their stories and relate to them.
This is the type of reading you will enjoy wherever you open it. Unwrapping the Sandwich Generation is a wonderful, thoughtful gift for not only another member of the adult child generation, but also to the loving senior in your life.

Stories that will Warm Your Heart Aug 4, 2007
Sue has given us beautifully written stories that guide us through the nuances of aging. Through these vignettes, we are given a bridge to compassionately and gracefully embrace the issues that arise as we age. This is a wonderful resource for seniors and their adult children.
Do It Now Jul 28, 2007
I loved this book of vignettes. It teaches us how to talk with our parents about subjects that are difficult. I read it, then I gave it to our daughter. She is giving it to her daughter. Read it now before you need to. Read it before it is too late. I wish I had the book before my mother passed on. The years are precious. Thanks, Susan, for your insights.

Long Term Care Planning Month Founder Rates Book Highly Oct 6, 2005
Wow! This book by Susan Cunningham is a special find. It offers keen insight into the emotions and feelings surrounding the challenge of long term care. A must-read for baby boomers who aren't sure how to help their parents as they age, and a must-read for advisors. Don't look here for answers, but instead for something that's much harder to find: insight and understanding.
