Balancing Work and Caregiving for Children, Adults, and Elders



March 1993 | 303 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Exploring how caregivers juggle their responsibilities of work and family, the authors of this volume suggest that dependant care needs to be addressed as a corporate, family and community concern. Drawing from literature as well as from their own extensive research, they present a thorough investigation of the stress factors experienced by workers caught between the frequently conflicting demands of these two roles. Policies, benefits and services reviewed range from approaches that intervene in the caregiving process to those that change the world of work with such alternatives as flexible working hours, child-care facilities and tax credits for dependant care.
