Aug. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Wichita, KS  – Throughout America millions of families are asking themselves, who will take care of mom and how? It’s a question that many more families will ask and have to answer sooner than they expect because people are living longer, but not necessarily healthier. The trend is crippling America’s economic prosperity and individual wealth.

In her recently published book “Who Will Take Care of Mom? A Guide for Family-Managed Senior Care”, author Cynthia Wilson examines the impact Medicare and Medicaid trends are having on elder care, including the effect filial responsibility laws will have on middle-class families.  

Twenty-nine states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Virginia, along with U.S. territory Puerto Rico have filial responsibility statutes. Filial responsibility statutes make adult children responsible for their parent’s health care debt. Wilson believes that if the Medicare reform plan put forth by Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan becomes a reality, it’s likely that more middle-class families and young adults will inherit their parent’s health care debt.
