More and more Arizona adults are finding themselves in the 'sandwich generation' in which they are caring for their parents as well as raising their children. They are often stressed meeting the conflicting needs of multiple family members. The AARP estimates there are 66 million Americans caring for children, spouses and their parents.

We found an article, written by Connie Cone Sexton, about a woman, Lisa Kulkarni, who finds herself in this very situation. She struggles to find time to work, care for her children and watch over her live-in mother.
