Sources & Notes

Source: Most LTSS is provided by adult children or other close family members.  Breaking down the caregiver support ratio by race/ethnicity shows that the pressure on family members is not constant across all demographic groups; it does not mean that caregivers should be of the same race/ethnicity as the care recipient.

Notes: The caregiver support ratio is defined as the number of people of peak caregiving age (45-64) per person age 80+, when LTSS need is greatest.  A lower number indicators fewer potential caregivers for each older person, and a greater pressure on those who are caregivers.
