Generazione Sandwich

LLP Grundtvig programme

Progetto ideato da Studiotaf . Genova

Sandwich Generation LP addresses the non-formal learning needs of women and men who have care responsibilities for frail elderly relatives.

The two problems frequently faced by these
non-professional caregivers are:

  • many interesting experiences get lost because many caregivers, lacking the knowledge of foreign languages, are not familiar with the range of practices developed in other European countries, useful to have the basic set of information needed when dealing every day with frail elderly;
  • these carers, often “baby boomers”, are struggling to juggle caring for their elderly relatives while supporting their own families. Therefore traditional Support Groups are not useful to these carers, simply because they do not have time to attend.
