1. Spiritual Sources

Among older boomers, faith and prayer are, by far, the most commonly cited sources of support for caregiving efforts. Fully 62 percent draw on spiritual aid. In addition, 42 percent say their church, synagogue, temple, or other religious organization has been helpful to them. The demographic breakdown of responses, reported in table 32, suggests that African Americans and women are particularly inclined to mention spiritual sources of help.
