AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001
3. Feelings about Help for Their Parents
Most older boomers feel good about the level of effort they have made on their older parents’ behalf. A majority (62%) believe that they have exceeded their parents’ expectations of care. This is particularly true among Asian Americans, as the data in table 25 indicate. While roughly two in three of all older boomers agree they exceeded their parents’ expectations, the proportion who strongly agree varies greatly. Those most strongly in agreement include women, those less educated, those with lower incomes, African Americans, Hispanics and Asian Americans.
