AARP Multicultural Survey July 2001

  • E.

    Caring for Other Generations

    • 1.

      Profile of Caregivers

More than one-fifth (22%) of the sandwich generation furnish aid to their parents, other elderly family members, or both. Seventeen percent personally provide help, which may include money as well as other forms of assistance, and another 5 percent bestow financial support alone. Seventy-seven percent, however, do not help with care for older relatives.

Figure 7: Help Care for Older Relatives

Help care for 17%

Support financially 5%

Do not help 77%

Q48. Do you help care for your parents, in-laws or other older relatives? Do you help support your parents, in-laws or other older relatives financially – that is, help pay their expenses?

One’s likelihood of providing such care tends to vary, however, depending on one’s racial or ethnic background, as the response patterns suggest. Indeed, differences in racial and ethnic heritage are probably the most pronounced, as reported in figure 8. Although the gap between U.S.-born and immigrant care providers is also quite large, it probably reflects the large proportion of Hispanics and Asians among older boomer immigrants.
