Don’t plan on your millennial taking care of sick relatives

If you’re a Boomer parent and hope your millennial kid will take care of you, you might want to think again.

They’re actually the least likely to help out a sick relative.

While 47% admitted they would rather avoid caring for a sick relative, millennials were by far least likely to lift a finger, according to a survey conducted by Braun Thermometers.


The survey, which helps promote Braun’s new No Touch thermometer, has some discouraging news for relatives of those born in the 1980s to early 2000s.

“How often have you avoided taking care of a sick family member out of fear of getting sick yourself?” the survey asked a random sampling of 1,019 adults in January.

And of the 511 men and 508 women, the results were that 21% of those between 18 and 24 said they avoided it “as often as I can.”

By comparison, only 1% of those 65 and older answered that way and only 2% of those aged 55 to 65 did.

Even in the next best category, again it was the millennials who came out as the most spoiled with 23% saying they sometimes have avoided caring for a sick relative.

Braun invented a new thermometer which allows a quick and accurate reading taken up to 2 inches away from the forehead.

Perhaps that will help millennials become a little more nurturing.
