Sandwich generation – a group of middle-aged people who, due to its central position (status) in the age structure and related age stratification is a generation (generation) that simultaneously takes care of elderly people (mostly their parents) and younger people (mostly your children). This phenomenon is also referred to as “women in the middle” or “caught in the middle”. The concept of “sandwich generation” in a narrow sense refers mainly to the traditionally perceived caring roles of women who are middle-aged (middle adulthood) and at the same time on the forefront of old age (before late adulthood). In the feminist approach, the social expectations towards women between 40 and 60 years old are oriented on helping children and young people to get an independent adult life, on the other hand they are oriented towards providing care to the older generation, especially in the case of disability, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Expectations regarding these care roles are formalized in a smaller one (eg tradition, gender equality, cultural circle, stereotypes) or to a greater extent (eg family policy of the state, personnel policy of enterprises, universality of work-life balance programs) which leads to inequality between women and men (Korzec, 1997).
