For Love and Money: Paying Family Caregivers
The recent emergence of options for compensating family caregivers has raised a host of new issues. Proponents of compensating family caregivers argue that it is a way to strengthen, expand, and sustain the natural support system. Critics worry that compensation for some of the work will erode family obligation, create a strain on the public system, and put older people at greater risk for abuse and poor care. This article discusses the dilemmas, debates, assumptions, and evidence regarding paid family caregiving.
