As the population ages, family caregiving is getting increased attention from business,
government, and communities. Understanding its dimensions and potential costs is
critical to informing innovations that may benefit caregivers as well as care recipients.
This exploratory study looks at the relationship between caregiving and well-being. The
analysis finds that caregivers, particularly women, were more likely to experience stress
and worry than non-caregivers, and less likely to feel as if they had enough time and
were well-rested. The paper presents findings and issues for future research.
