Giving care often results in physical, social, and emotional problems and stresses, in addition to the fmancial and workplace burdens it creates (Stemeck 1990). Research fmds that women report greater caregiver burden (Miller and Cafasso 1992; Hawkins, 1996) and devote more time to caregiving tasks (Neal 1997). Women who take on care of an impaired parent in mid-life often juggle multiple roles: mothers of children living at home, wives, and employees. To the extent that the traditional division of labor persists within families, these women will continue to perform the majority of housework chores and function as the primary parent for small children.
