Employed Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care

Employed family caregivers, despite their workplace obligations, perform many of the tasks that health care professionals do—a range of medical/nursing tasks including medication management, wound care, using meters and monitors, and more — according to a new report released by the AARP Public Policy Institute and the United Hospital Fund.

The new report is the first to document that those who have the responsibilities of full- or part-time employment take on this high level of support in similar proportions.

You can read a news release about the report and download the complete report itself.
