Building a Legacy of Love with Christy Byrne
Welcome to the third and last episode in our 2022 Summer Book Series with HFC featuring Christy Byrne Yates, MS. Christy is an expert in navigating the challenges and opportunities in life, including living in the “Sandwich Generation” (those raising children who are also caring for an aging parent), special needs education, and parenting. A former school psychologist, she applied many of the skills used in her work in her approach to caring for both of her parents, who each had dementia, while raising her own two children. She is the author of Building a Legacy of Love: Thriving in the Sandwich Generation.
This episode is a replay of our August 16th HFC Summer Book Series. We discuss the gifts bestowed when we plan for our end-of-life needs, surviving life when you’re in the middle of the caregiver sandwich, and the bittersweet decisions that must be made when juggling caring for ill or aging parents while raising kids.
