generación con responsabilidad doble... is my suggestion


Explanation:
based on your context.

This is the only link I found where the word "sandwich" was used but it was used in the academic sense:

"sistema de doble tutoría (sandwich)"
http://www.uacam.mx/epi/becasre.htm

which leads me to believe they are talking being caught in between the two generations, taking care of the parents as well as the children...

generación intermedia


Explanation:
puedes usar generación atravezada, intermedia, atrapada, del medio... se refiere (es mi opinión) a aquellas generaciones que se quedan sin muchas expectativas al estar entre la mayor (de los padres) y la de sus propios hijos, más o menos como la generación X, sin muchas expectativas, pero con mucha carga social y familiar.

Excelentes sugerencias de Maria, Mongo y Capotito...


Explanation:
Solamente deseo agregar este extracto de una página en Internet que confirma sus sugerencias:

The Sandwich Generation,©™ definition:
Traditional: those sandwiched between aging parents who need care and/or help and their own children.


Club Sandwich: those in their 50s or 60s, sandwiched between aging parents, adult children and grandchildren. OR Those in their 30s and 40s, with young children, aging parents and grandparents.

Open Faced: anyone else involved in elder care.

Muchos saludos afectuosos de Oso :^)
