As the Baby Boomers age, the question of how to care for the burgeoning frail-elderly population grows more pressing. Sandwich-generation adult children are often called upon to make long-term care choices for their frail-elderly parents. This study used a Likert-type survey to determine if any of the six options for long-term care – no care, skilled nursing facilities, group homes, assisted living residences, home health care, and living at home with the sandwich-generation adult child – led to the highest degree of satisfaction for the sandwich-generation adult child who made the long-term care decision. The results indicated that having the frail-elderly parent live with the sandwichgeneration adult child brought the highest level of satisfaction.
