Filmed by San Francisco-based Executive Producer Toan Lam, the fourteen-minute film was created by AARP to help families start the difficult but vital conversation about caregiving.

WHY:                         Ÿ  One in five Americans care for aging parents, spouses, relatives, friends or other loved ones. At some point in your life, you either will be a caregiver or need a caregiver. 
Ÿ  In California, there are more than 4 million family caregivers providing $47 billion annually in unpaid care.
Ÿ  Asian Americans provide caregiving for their families more than any other ethnic group (42% compared to 22% of other Americans).
Ÿ  Asian Americans have a higher sense of caregiving responsibility with 73% feeling that children in the family should care for elderly parents (compared to 49% of other Americans). 72% of Asian Americans express guilt for not providing more care (compared to 48% of other Americans).
Ÿ  Chinese Americans are twice as likely (14%) to live in multigenerational households compared to other Americans (7%). With the heavy expectation that care should be provided by one’s own family, larger households help enable caregiving.
