The Generational Trickle-down Effect

Receiving unpaid care from a family member can have a number of implications for the carer in terms of health and financial wellbeing. As to the latter, this can include disruption to working patterns and personal financial hardship. Within this section, we explore the experience of Generation X+ and Millennials/Generation Z on the potential impact of having to support the long-term care needs of parents or grandparents. We found these groups hold strikingly different perspectives.
