Carleton University professor Linda Duxbury shares practical advice and solutions for those balancing paid employment and caring for their aging parents as well as their children.
The children have left the nest and now life should get easier — but wait: your parents and in-laws are getting older and now require your assistance; your children just lost their job and have returned home — with baby in tow. You waited until your career was established to have children, but then your mother broke her hip and now you are balancing her needs, your child’s needs and a demanding job.
Does this sound like you? Then join us for this practical and information-packed talk with author Linda Duxbury. She explores the challenges faced by employed caregivers — individuals who combine paid employment with the care of one or more elderly dependents and the care of one or more children. She also discusses how employers could facilitate the balance between work and caregiving and presents a business case for change in this area.Buy tickets/get more info now
