If you are an adult child caring for an aging parent or simply in the midst of trying to understand your own aging process, therapy can help clarify your role and identity in life. The older population–persons 65 years or older, currently represents 12.9% of the U.S. population, about one in every eight Americans.By 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice the number in 2000.
Are you one of millions who are part of the “Sandwich Generation” (an adult child caring for both children and aging parents)? The everyday life struggles and challenges in maintaining a marriage, family, raising children, having a career and caring for an aging parent can be immense and sometimes incomprehensible. We will help you make sense of your changing identity and more comfortable with making big decisions.
Dr. Lederer has lectured on caregiving and aging in various hospital and facility settings. She continues to supervise psychology students whose emphasis is working with this specific population group. Dr. Lederer also runs a support group, “The Sandwich Generation: Caring for an Aging/Ill Parent.”
