I Have a Job And I’m The Caregiver For My Loved One

Caregiver's Work-Life Balance Responsibilities at Home and Job

One of the most common problems family caregivers face is trying to juggle their job responsibilities with their caregiving responsibilities. In fact, 60% of family caregivers are employed – and two-thirds have had to make some adjustments in their work-life because of their caregiving role. We know that when family caregivers reach out for assistance, they are better able to take care of themselves and their loved ones while holding onto their jobs. Some caregivers have enough flexibility in their jobs to handle both roles. Some decide to leave the workforce or work part-time. There is so much to consider. These resources are useful for the family caregiver who is also holding a job.
