SandwYch was created to help families who face the daily challenges of caring for multiple generations. Whether that be children and parents, a spouse and neighbors, parents and grandparents, or all of the above.
SandwYch is a community of expertise, guiding you through every step in the caregiving journey-your way. This is exactly why we have a “Y” in our name, it stands for YOU!
YOU determine the type of care you want as a patient. We support your journey with a realistic approach to caregiving.
YOU determine the type of advocate you can be as a caregiver for family, friends and co-workers. We maximize your support team and resources with easy to integrate tools.
YOU determine the type of support you need using novel and industry-recognized tools so you can be a powerful caregiver. We celebrate your time and commitment with the valuable caregiver research that shapes communities.
We want our parents to feel empowered and honored. We want families to enjoy all the moments we get with each other, even the hard parts. We’re here to help you and your family whether you’re planning ahead or find yourself in the middle of it right now. Let’s do it together!
