Abstract

A survey of 371 health practitioners from the Arabic speaking, Chinese, German, Greek, Italian and Anglo Australian communities investigated perceptions of the help aged people within these communities receive from, and give to, their families as well as community attitudes regarding such transfers. Positive and negative aspects of intergenerational relationships within the communities were also examined. Highly significant community differences were observed in responses to 22 of the 29 questions asked.
