AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001

We also asked respondents whether they prefer to take care of their own parents, and, as the results in table 27 indicate, most do. Seventy-six percent say that, even if their parents could afford to hire help, they would prefer to continue providing assistance. The proportion of affirmative responses is slightly higher among African Americans and among those who already render assistance.
