“American companies are facing a caregiving crisis – they just refuse to acknowledge it. Rising healthcare and professional caregiving costs and changing demographics over the past few decades have put great pressure on American employees as they try to balance work and care responsibilities. Yet, many employers remain largely oblivious to the growing costs of this hidden “care economy” – costs that hurt employers and employees alike.” From The Caring Company report by Joseph B. Fuller and Manjari Raman, Harvard Business School, Managing the Future of Work Project, 2019.

What people say about Caregivers Work: A Six Step Guide to Balancing Work and Family
“Caregiving engages us emotionally, physically, and logistically. Marosy has been working in this area for decades and knows that there’s no “correct“ way to manage family caregiving: no magic solution for the complications of relationships, care needs, and competing claims on our time. What he does in his new edition is provide an organized, systematic formula to help caregivers plan for the unexpected and difficult issues that are likely to arise – particularly useful for first time caregivers.”
Donna Wagner, Ph.D.
Dean of the College of Health and Social Services, New Mexico State University
“This guide is a must for employers as well as employed caregivers… a cost effective way for employers to avoid productivity losses related to elder care – while empowering employees who are dealing with this growing issue.”
Director of the Management, Finance and Leadership Program, University of Maryland, Former Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, and former Associate Director of the Office of Management and Budget
“John Paul’s book is a welcome resource for HR professionals and employees: compassionate, timely, and comprehensive – packed with essential information for caregivers. Six steps with six hundred helpful suggestions.”
Executive Director (retired) of the New England Employee Benefits Council
“Having a career in the field of aging prepared me for the daunting task of being a caregiver to both of my parents, yet mostly in theory. I found that nothing but the actuality of the situation teaches you how to be with the raw and broad spectrum of emotions that a caregiver experiences. Addressing everything from self care to financial planning, this book is a vital companion for anyone trying to balance work, life and caregiving responsibilities.”
Amy Angelo, BSW, MSOD
“A Resource Every Working Caregiver Needs Right Now! Working while providing care for an aging loved one can be immensely challenging. Trying to navigate the system to assist a loved one while maintaining your sanity seems like an impossible achievement. Successfully balancing work and the care of someone you love often depends on having the access to the right information at the right time. I understand firsthand how daunting this task can be. My personal experience with working and caring for my husband’s mother would have been greatly enhanced if we would have had Caregivers Work at the time. Caregivers Work – it will help you set a foundation for successful caregiving.”
