Pew Research Center(http://www.pewsocialtrends.org) released a study noting that “nearly half (47%) of adults in their 40s and 50s have a parent age 65 or older and are either raising a young child or financially supporting a grown child (age 18 or older). And about one-in-seven middle-aged adults (15%) is providing financial support to both an aging parent and a child. With an aging population and a generation of young adults struggling to achieve financial independence, the burdens and responsibilities of middle-aged Americans are increasing.” For more data and trends, read the entire report by clicking on this link: http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2013/01/30/the-sandwich-generation/1/.
