How Always Best Care Supports Caregivers From The "Sandwich Generation"

Research by the American Association of Retired Persons (2020) shows that Clinton Township’s caregivers need support, particularly those who identify as part of the Sandwich Generation, sandwiched between competing child and senior care needs, while also trying to find time to make a living.

If that’s you, don’t despair—you’re not alone, and Always Best Care is here to help.

Read on to learn how we’re supporting Clinton Township’s Sandwich Generation and improving seniors’ safety, comfort, and quality of life, or call (586)-690-7500 to speak directly with a caregiver coordinator in Southeast Michigan.

How Senior Caregivers Support Michigan’s Sandwich Generation

  • Always Best Care eliminates caregiver stress and ensures care continuity. According to the AARP, 26% of Americans now report having difficulty coordinating care, and 23% say the stress of it all has made their own health worse. But with Always Best Care on your side, you never have to worry—our respite care solutions are available whenever and wherever they’re needed, and every plan is both 100% personalized and easily scalable as your loved ones’ needs change over time.
  • Always Best Care gives families more opportunities for quality time together. Nearly one-quarter (24%) of Clinton Township’s caregivers are currently looking after more than one person, with many splitting their care duties between parents and children.

    If you identify as a member of the “Sandwich Generation,” sandwiched between child and senior care responsibilities, with little time leftover for bonding and memory-making, our caregivers can help. Let us take care of the cooking, cleaning, and support with activities of daily living, while you focus on reconnecting with your loved ones on a more personal and meaningful level.

  • Always Best Care helps families organize and assess caregiver resources. As with many things in life, when trying to arrange family care, failing to plan is planning to fail. As per the AARP’s family caregiver guide, the first thing you should do is flesh out your family support network, identifying all available resources and family members who are willing to lend a hand.

    Even if you don’t intend to go pro with our senior caregivers, we can help you organize and assess your caregiving resources during your free consultation. We have established strong relationships with local senior centers, health professionals, and assisted living providers, and we can offer you a shortlist of recommendations based on your unique care needs. And should you need professional caregivers to fill schedule gaps at any point, we’re only a phone call away.

  • Always Best Care alleviates family caregiver tensions. Although caregiving can be immensely rewarding, it can also be a source of stress and family conflict, as caregivers fight over who’s responsible for what, and care recipients develop feelings of guilt or frustration regarding their current care arrangements—all while the demands of caregiving keep piling up on those who lend a hand.

    But with Always Best Care, caregiver conflicts melt away. Your loved one never has to feel guilty about asking for help from a paid professional, so no care needs go unmet, and your family gets the peace of mind that comes with knowing help is always just a phone call away.
