Hi, I'm a gerontology student at a University here in Texas and I need
some help. I'm working on a research paper regarding the growing
number of baby boomers who don't live in a close proximity to their
aging parents, therefore, rely heavily on the Internet to help locate
services, housing and/or elder care for their loved ones who live in
Texas. I can't help but think they would use the Internet for this
type of research because for one thing, just because they live
throughout parts of Texas or even the US as a matter of fact, their
loved one lives in Texas which means the kids most likely don't have a
local phone book handy. Therefore, the Internet would be the tool of
choice, I would think. However, I can't find any recent stats or
information regarding this. Every time I preform a search I find
articles about everything else except this topic. Any help on where
I could find this type of information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hello texgal-ga,

I'd love to help you with your question but I'm confused as to what
you're looking for. Are you looking for some information to
prove/support your thesis that baby boomers use the Internet to
research remote resources to help their parents? OR Are you looking
for more general information about how baby boomers are involved with
finding help for their aging parents? There are lots of resources
available on the subject of finding and choosing elder care. Please
say more about what aspects you're interested in.

I also suggest that you review the Google Answers pricing guidelines
so that you can calibrate your expectations about the type of answer
you're likely to get at the price you've set.  $5 questions "Can be
answered with a single link or a single piece of information." You
seem to be looking for more.

Good luck.
