People with parents aged 80 or over who provide informal care

In this study regarding informal care, only the fact that respondents were providing informal care to a person of persons aged 80 or over is known. It is not known to whom that care was provided, and therefore we do not know if all that care went to a parent or parents. However, this study does show that people with parents aged 80 or over are much more likely to be informal caregivers and to experience a heavier burden from informal care than their counterparts without parents in that age group.
