AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001
On the other hand, members of the sandwich generation do not necessarily want their children to share their own sense of obligation to care for living parents. As table 24 reports, 69 percent do not want their children to plan to take care of them when they are old.
Again, responses vary among different racial and ethnic groups. Asian Americans are by far the most likely to prefer that their children plan to care for them (38%), and whites are the least so (19%). Also immigrants (36%) are more apt than their U.S.-born counterparts (21%) to want their children plan to care for them.
