Sandwich Generation

Some Brits are spending more on looking after their parents than children!

Research by Vitality Life has shown that two in five Brits (40%) expect to financially support their parents. The so called “sandwich generation” already has 1 in 10 UK residents spending more on care for their elderly parents, than their children. With the number of UK citizens with dementia estimated to be around 2 million by 2051 and life expectancy growing, it demonstrates need for long term planning in this area.

Matthew Eaton IFA suggests – “Parents need to consider the impact of what not adequately planning for their retirement will have upon their children and grandchildren.”
