This insightful article joins the problems of increasing childhood obesity with the increase projected in senior citizens of the echo boom generation, and goes on to posit an increased burden on the then sandwich generation. Cleary discusses the increased future need for caregivers, recognizes the role and value of adult children caregivers (especially women), and suggests approaches to address the situation.
