Why “the Sandwich Generation” Needs Home Security Systems

Times have changed! Home security systems are no longer a luxury for the wealthy. Everyone needs affordable access to quality home security including the families and caregivers known as “the Sandwich Generation”.

What is the Sandwich Generation?

The term Sandwich Generation describes folks in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who are tasked with raising their children and caring for elderly parents, all while holding down a job. Sometimes they’re single parents. And sometimes, they’re raising grandchildren too.

  • Here in Greenville, the senior population is growing rapidly!
  • The Greenville News reported in 2019 that by 2030, the number of older adults would double, with a total of 5.8 million seniors in South Carolina.

So while you might not think of yourself as a member of the Sandwich Generation yet, it could happen.

Why Do Modern Families Need Home Security?

Tasked with parenting, elder care, and a career, it’s no surprise that mothers among the Sandwich Generation experience more stress and anxiety than any other group. Nearly 40% of moms in this age group experience extreme stress.

What if you could eliminate some of that stress?
