​​U.S. - Adults would rather talk to their kids about the birds and the bees than tell their aging parents they are no longer fit to drive.

That’s according to Care.com, an online destination for finding and managing family care. 

The company surveyed 500 people online for their 2016 Senior Care Survey, about 79 percent of whom were between the ages of 18 and 51.​

As it turns out, most adults have not discussed senior care options with their parents. In fact, they’re actively putting it off.

Just over half—about 52 percent—of all survey respondents admitted that they haven’t talked with their aging loved ones about senior care issues.
​​And 54 percent of respondents said they’d rather have the “sex talk” with their own children than talk with their aging loved ones about not being able to drive anymore.

About 30 percent of respondents are intending to discuss senior care issues with their aging loved ones before a need arises.

But 55 percent of respondents are only planning to talk about senior care issues with their aging loved ones if or when a need arises.​​
