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 created SandwYch for you and your loved ones. 80-90% of us will need over 4.5 years of caregiving. Currently families spend over $7,000 in out-of-pocket expenses annually, in addition to caregiving. Work and family schedules are severely altered, and exhaustion for those in the sandwich generation is at an all-time high. And yet, most families ignore preparing in advance because it’s sad and we’d rather avoid it. Frankly, we’re overwhelmed and exhausted! But in reality, planning gives us an opportunity to live, to embrace, and to honor our loved ones. We want you as caregivers to be prepared, empowered and to have peace of mind.
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!
