Balancing Work and Caregiving for Children, Adults, and Elders

This book explores how caregivers juggle their responsibilities of work and family. The authors suggest that dependent care needs to be addressed as a corporate, family and community concern. Drawing from literature in the field, 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 are reviewed ranging from approaches that actually 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 dependent care.
