HealthLeaders Fact File for November: Eldercare Decision Makers




As the country continues to gray, more Americans are faced with important healthcare decisions about their elderly loved ones. More middle-aged folks (22%) are making general healthcare decisions for the elderly than any other age group. And on average, more than half report assisting an elderly person in making decisions about home care and hospitalizations. What other eldercare decisions are Americans making? And how do age, income, and education affect this decision making?
 
The latest HealthLeaders Media Fact File uses data from the Truven Health AnalyticsSM PULSE™ Healthcare Survey to provide insight into these questions. The PULSE Survey is based on more than 100,000 household interviews, drawing its data from a random sample stratified by geography. For the data in this report, survey respondents were asked about making healthcare service decisions with or for an elderly person who either lives in the surveyed person’s household or within 100 miles of their home.

  13. We must make a decision precisely how to keep up the parents as well as grandfather and grandmother when they are usually more aged. Ideally, the majority of us would not wish to placed the aged relatives in another woman's health Senior care.
