Sandwich Corner: Over age 40? This post’s for you.

You may have noticed that I often channel vintage ad campaigns in my posts (as in this one). In Third Age “Sandwich Corner” I echo Budweiser’s 1979 “This Bud’s For You” spot, which Budweiser Ireland has just reintroduced. If you are over age 40, it’s likely that these posts are for you—they may resonate either from a career or caregiving perspective or both. In a study released in 2013, Pew Research Center found that nearly half (47 percent) of middle-aged adults have a parent 65 or older and are caring for or financially supporting a child. Look to Sandwich Corner posts for commentary and information around work, life, and financial balance for the Sandwich Generation and life-enrichment ideas you might suggest to older Third Agers in your orbit. As well, periodically in this category I’ll post about new twists on that most popular of finger foods, the sandwich!
