New Study-Family Caregivers in 3 Countries

On several occasions we have blogged about the increasing need for family caregivers. Thus the new report from Pew Research Center is quite timely.  Family Support in Graying Societies: How Americans, Germans and Italians are Coping with an Aging Population was released in May 2015. The purpose of the report is to provide an

understanding intergenerational relations in three countries that are undergoing rapid aging – the United States, Germany and Italy. Parallel surveys were administered in these three countries, the grayest of the West’s advanced economies, to explore the ways in which families are coping or providing support across generations as they experience this major demographic shift. The surveys were conducted among 1,692 adults in the United States, 1,700 in Germany and 1,516 in Italy, from Oct. 27 to Dec. 18, 2014.

The report is divided into six sections, including demographics & financial profiles,  family providing care, aging in the 3 countries, helping parents, helping the kids who provide care and keeping in touch. There is very valuable information in the report.  The full report runs 59 pages and is available here.
