Sound bite text: ISU study finds women expect to care for parents, but few prepare for it

"One thing that's really scary is that there's often not any communication about parents' finances to these women, and so something will happen. There will be a crisis, a parent will get sick, become disabled, have to go to a nursing home and then the women won't know where any of the financial papers. The parents have not told them. There's just a lack of information."

Susan Stewart, associate professor of sociology
