Look Into Your Future: Conversations with Millennials, Baby Boomers about Caregiving (film screening and panel)
FREE film screening of award-winning FAST-FORWARD and LIVE panel event moderated by multimedia artist Jacquelyn Joyce of @momofmymom
Award-Winning Documentary FAST-FORWARD follows four millennials and their parents as they travel through time to meet their future selves. Wearing an MIT-produced “aging empathy suit” and working with professional make-up artists, they grapple with the realizations, conversations and mindset required to age successfully. Ultimately, the families learn they have more control over how they age than they thought.
Partnering with CARING ACROSS GENERATIONS, we’re honoring National Sandwich Generation Month by offering a free screening of the film and a live, virtual conversation.

Millennials, the generation of those born between 1980 and 1996, represent about 10 million of the total 40 million unpaid caregivers in the US. As the population of older adults over the age of sixty-five doubles over the next generation, millennials are changing the face of caregiving.
The focus of this upbeat one-hour conversation is to appreciate the unique challenges facing millennial caregivers. We’ll be talking about:
Self-care is important…but where to find time, humor and yes, friends!!
Creative communities and coping
“If I knew better, I’d do better”…where are the resources that are relevant to millennials?
How to talk with loved ones about preparing for aging in a society that stigmatizes aging
