Project 9: Aging Caregivers: An Analysis of Employment Health, Life Satisfaction and Financial Well-Being using the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) & Statistics Canada General Social Survey (GSS)- Caregiving and Care Receiving 2018 (Cycle 32)

The release of baseline data of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) fills the data gap with respect to aging caregivers, and specifically carer-employees.  A range of research hypotheses are being tested specific to the larger research question, as follows: How can the health of elderly caregiver Canadians be improved or best sustained given the aging process and the specific factors at work for those who are also juggling paid employment?
