2141 - Caregiving and Intergenerational Relationships

Sun, August 11, 8:30 to 10:10am, Sheraton New York, Floor: Lower Level, Sutton Place

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


How families provide care to their various members is often complex. Researchers are increasingly expanding their lens to encompass family caregivers of both genders, grandparent care, and care relationships among siblings and distant and created kin. Family strategies are as different as shift work, scaling back work hours, and outsourcing household tasks. Institutional approaches involve various forms of leave, the entitlements to which vary by employer and by state. This session welcomes papers which utilize social science research on the caregiving side of contemporary family life.
