About Christy Byrne Yates, MS

Christy Byrne Yates is the author of Building a Legacy of Love: Thriving in the Sandwich Generation, part-memoir, part caregiver guide, written from her experience caring for two parents with dementia.

In addition to being an author, she is a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP), a credentialed school psychologist, a speaker, and life coach. As the mother of two – now grown – children, she became an expert in navigating life’s challenges and opportunities, including living in the “Sandwich Generation,” those raising children while caring for aging parents.

In this episode, we discuss what it means to be in the Sandwich Generation, how to talk to family about end-of-life issues, and the value of connections for both caregivers and those living with dementia.
