Barbara McVicker is an eldercare expert, national speaker, and author of books and articles on the topics of caregiving and eldercare. Barbara knows firsthand the benefits and challenges of being a caregiver. For 10 years she looked after her aging parents while raising two children and struggling to maintain her career as a high-level development director. McVicker mirrored the typical caregiver in the United States – mid 40s, married and employed. Overwhelmed and feeling isolated, she eventually quit her job to care for her parents full-time. It was this decade-long struggle that inspired her to write her first book, Stuck in the Middle: Shared Stories and Tips for Caregiving Your Elderly Parents. Barbara conducted more than 200 interviews with caregivers and health care professionals while researching for the book, which she dedicated to the "Sandwich Generation", the large demographic of adults "stuck in the middle" of raising their children and taking care of their parents.
