Balancing Work & Caregiving
High stress, changing schedules, and competing demands are a constant threat to working
caregivers’ well-being. If you hold a job and provide care -- as most caregivers do --
start protecting yourself by actively addressing schedule problems, taking advantage of
support programs, and reaching out to others.
Learn how and when to approach your supervisor about caregiving’s effect on your work.
Our guide to balancing work and caregiving offers support, suggestions, and tools to help
you meet both responsibilities without sacrificing your health. Learn how to
approach your boss,
make use of employer programs
that benefit caregivers, manage your busy schedule,
ask for help,
and cope with stress.
