Providing care to a loved one can be challenging and rewarding. For those family caregivers who must work fulltime, the challenges can be daunting, especially when the caregiving includes medical or nursing tasks that even professionals find challenging. Tonight on Healthstyles at 11:00 PM on WBAI (; 99.5FM), producer and moderator Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, interviews Carol Levine, Director of the Families and Health Care Project of the United Hospital Fund, and the co-author of a report on Employed Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care. Levine discusses the findings in this report and the benefits to employers and family caregivers alike when workplaces adopt policies that support the caregiver.
