U.S. demographic trends show a growing population of seniors, and increasing non-institutionalization of people with sensory, physical, mental, or self-care disabilities. The socioeconomic trends also suggest escalation of health care costs, a shrinking workforce, and limited resources from government benefits and personal investments. Workplaces and social structures will inevitably face more working professionals who need to integrate careers with caregiving. There is an urgent need for working professionals and employers to develop innovative solutions that address the growing needs to integrate career, caregiving, and other social/life roles and responsibilities. This guidebook offers perspectives to promote a productive, cohesive, and meaningful work-life realization and presents a practical model to understand the multiple drivers that impact the caregiving process, and the essential components for managing the drivers to improve the care outcome for both the care receiver and the caregiver.
