Yes, this is exactly my parents — they had the same jobs for decades, were pushed out, and they…

I know! I don’t know how to help either! It seems like all the information on how to help your deteriorating parents is targeted towards baby boomers.

I have two parents that I really don’t know how they will make it through the end of their life financially. Honestly as I seek to expand my own family I dread the idea of becoming a ‘sandwich generation’ (with needy parents and needy children)… in my twenties.
