Ms. O’Sullivan focuses on employees who are members of the “sandwich generation”, those who are raising children and assisting older adult family members, as a population that is at risk for issues related to physical and emotional health, balancing work and family responsibilities, and taking care of themselves.

She considers their situation and challenges, some of the potential negative effects of these compounded stressors, and strategies that employers, families, and the individuals themselves can use to create a sustainable work / caregiving situation. 

During this webinar, you will learn:
  • To recognize stressors faced by “sandwich generation” workers
  • To identify potential negative effects of worker caregiving stress
  • Strategies to assist sandwich generation caregivers in balancing their life situations
