Caregiving and Employment: Competing or Complementary Roles?
Scharlach, Andrew E.
Gerontologist, v34 n3 p378-85 Jun 1994
Examined potential benefits and costs of having both work and elder care responsibilities, based on interviews with 94 employed caregivers. For most respondents, negative aspects of combining work and caregiving roles were outweighed by positive aspects, such as sense of accomplishment, enhanced interpersonal relationships, and opportunities to compensate for limitations experienced in each of the separate roles.
