New Caregiving Publications from AARP

Posted: December 6, 2012

Protecting Family Caregivers from Employment Discrimination and Home Alone: Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care are two new publications from AARP
  1. Protecting Family Caregivers from Employment Discrimination, identifies discrimination in the workplace encountered by workers with eldercare responsibilities as an emerging trend and highlights the limited protections for working caregivers.  The report calls for developing public and private solutions to ensure that workers with eldercare responsibilities receive equal employment opportunity and are protected from workplace discrimination. The report was produced with support from The SCAN Foundation and The Commonwealth Fund as a follow-up piece to Raising Expectations: A State Scorecard on Long-Term Services and Supports for Older Adults, People with Physical Disabilities, and Family Caregivers.
  2. A report from the AARP Public Policy Institute: Home Alone: Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care
