I conduct a research project where I wanted to explore the topic of baby boomers in the sandwich generation. I have so many friends that are sending a child off to college in addition to caring for an older parent. I don't believe that a lot of studies have addressed the toll that increased technology demands take on the sandwich generation. This is the hypothesis that I began with.
1) If the human computer interaction were usable for older adults then the workload on the Sandwich generation would decrease.
2) The workload on the sandwich generation will be decreased if the younger and older generations receiving care has access to computers.
