Women in the Middle: Cuba's Sandwich Generation.

Abstract

I once met anthropologist Dolores Juliano, who wisely observed that women "don't live more, they just die later." Women's longer lifespan is almost mythical, but our longer lives are fraught with excessive morbidity. And extended life expectancy itself - a phenomenon that has caught health systems unprepared - has boosted the role of "the caregiver" needed for older persons and the chronically ill.
