You Take Care of Mom and Dad-Who Will Take Care of You?
According to a report by the AARP Public Policy Institute, family members ages 45 to 64 are the likeliest caregivers for the nation’s older people. As boomers age over the next several decades, the ratio of likely caregivers to those that need care will shrink.
There are about 7 caregivers for each person 80+
There will be about 4 caregivers as Boomers reach 80
There will be about 3 caregivers as Generation X hits 80
Older generations now have lots of boomers to care for them. But with lower rates of marriage and fewer children, the baby boom generation (born 1946-1964) and Generation X (1965-1979) will have smaller pools of caregivers.
