What does it mean to be in the Sandwich Generation? It’s that challenging time families face when they are caring for both their children and their parents. Much like a sandwich they are ‘pressed,’ for time, money and resources.Through this film we will explore what it means to be in the sandwich generation, and what we can do to prepare ourselves for the age wave.
After the screening we will host a panel discussion with local leaders in aging and give you a behind the scenes look into what makes our system work. We will also be talking about the innovative new bipartisan Long-Term Care Trust Act, and what a $100/day benefit could mean for your community.
A big thank-you to the entire staff at Talking Eyes Media for donating this film.

This is a crucial first-in-the-nation piece of legislation, and we are very excited to share it with you! What could the Long-Term Care Trust Act do for Tacoma? Join us and find out!
