Who Cares for Them? Workers in the Home Care Industry


Large and growing numbers of the frail elderly and disabled depend on paid workers to assist them in daily life. Identifying critical factors that affect the work conditions and job satisfaction of the home aide work force, the authors also describe demonstration programs that document the potential for work life changes in the home care industry--changes that will improve quality of work life, reduce turnover, and contribute to greater continuity of care. Managerial strategies and the policy changes necessary to implement these innovations are thoroughly explored.
