Report on work-life balance of working-age carers

Report on work-life balance of working-age carers | Worplace health promotion | Scoop.it

This new report by Denis Bouget, Slavina Spasova and Bart Vanhercke (OSE) is concerned with some of the key questions that arise regarding (a) the work-life balance of working-age people – mainly women – who care for disabled and chronically ill dependent relatives, (b) reconciling work and care obligations and (c) maintaining the well-being of the carers and their families. The analysis focuses on carers of working age, whether or not they are actually working. The report draws on the national contributions prepared by the 35 European Social Policy Network (ESPN) Country Teams. It demonstrates that the work-life balance of the carer – mostly a working age woman – is a problematic issue which is rarely recognised as such.

M Dolores Solé Gómez's insight:
No surprise: The carer is mostly a working age woman and the issue is rarely recognised as problematic.
