Radio Show New Resource for the Sandwich Generation

Written by Martha on April 1st, 2011

Are you raising children while trying to navigate health issues for your aging parents? Perhaps you have a boomerang adult child (He’s back!) only to learn your parent can no longer safely stay in his/her home. These extra pressures can take a toll on relationships both in your core family and with siblings.

Here in Columbus, Westminster-Thurber Community, part of the Ohio Presbyterian retirement Services (OPRS), provides community education opportunities to seniors and their families. Through monthly Coffee Time speakers, support groups, and informative workshops, WTC actively seeks to provide timely answers to senior issues.

Recently, OPRS began a state-wide service to older adults and their families through a weekly radio program on WRFD 880AM radio. The program, Journey Through Aging with Joel, airs on Saturdays at 8 am and features leading experts, who provide practical advice on senior-related topics. Joel Wrobbel, Marketing Director at WTC is a caring, “get to the heart of the matter” host.

Martha is currently being featured on the program in a series organizing spots each Saturday at 8:50 am. You can visit the website at to hear shows you missed, ask a question, and find links to senior related services.
