The Sandwich Generation More of the baby boomer generation are caring for children, parents and spouses all at once – are you one of them? If you’re part of the baby boomer generation and find yourself concerned about the heart health of your spouse, your parents and your children, you may not be alone. The baby boomer generation is currently approaching their high risk years for heart disease and stroke, so it is more important than ever for this generation to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease by living a healthy lifestyle. However, the reality is that one in five adults aged 50 to 64 years old exhibits two or more of the major risk factors for heart disease. Both boomers and their parents are at risk.

Twenty-six per cent of British Columbia’s children are also at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes because they are overweight or obese. Childhood obesity has tripled in the past 25 years and is now threatening the wellbeing of an entire generation. This leaves a middle-aged generation ‘sandwiched’ by the responsibility to care for spouses, parents and children who are all at higher risk for heart disease and stroke, than ever before.

Are you part of the sandwich generation? Share your story and connect with others on the Patient Caregiver Message Board. heartandstroke.bc.ca
