J Aging Health. 2014 Oct; 26(7):1225-47.JA

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

Filial piety is a key Chinese cultural value that determines children's caregiving obligation to older adults. This study aims to evaluate the expectations and perceived receipt of filial piety from the perspectives of Chinese older adults.

METHOD

Data were drawn from the Population Study of Chinese Elderly in Chicago (PINE) study, a population-based study of U.S. Chinese older adults aged 60 and above in the Greater Chicago area. Filial care was examined in six domains, including care, respect, greeting, happiness, obedience, and financial support. Socio-demographics correlate with expectations and receipt of filial piety were also reported.

RESULTS

Participants reported high level of overall expectations and receipts of filial piety, and highest expectation and perceived receipt were placed on the domain of respect.

DISCUSSION

This study provides insights on the extent to which U.S. Chinese older adults expect and perceive receipt of filial care. Our findings have implications for the provision of culturally appropriate health care services.
