POLL: CBS News Aging Parents


Additional analysis from a recent CBS News national survey of 1142 adults (conducted 2/8 through 2/11) finds that 21% of Americans say they are currently caring for an aging parent or have cared for one in the past; 43% of those say it has caused disputes among family members.

The 43% speaks eons of the challenges that await all boomers with their aging parents. You may want to look at an article I published last year on "communicating tough choices to aging parents" to get an idea how to reduce the conflict between generations. The link for it is on the top right hand side of my home page: http://www.dsolie.com.
