About the Author
Praise For Who Cares For The Elderly?: Public Policy and the Experiences of Adult Daughters (Women In The Political Economy)…
"As Abel points out, society still expects adult daughters to provide live-in, long-term care for their elderly parents—often at the expense of career and private life.... Some form of financial compensation or relief, support services (transportation, day care centers, etc.), education and therapy groups for caregivers, are among the author's proposals for easing the daughters' burdens."
