Rural-Urban Difference in Workplace Supports and Impacts for Employed Caregivers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: This study examines rural-urban differences in employed caregivers’ access to workplace supports, negative impacts of caregiving on work, and the association between work and caregiver strain, which can have negative impacts on health. Methods: We used a cross-sectional analysis of employed caregivers (n = 635) from the 2015 Caregiving in the US survey, including bivariate comparisons of caregiver characteristics, access to workplace benefits, and workplace impacts by rural-urban location, as well as ordered logistic regression models to assess the relationship between workplace benefits and impacts and caregiver strain, stratified by rural-urban location. Findings: Employed rural caregivers had significantly fewer workplace benefits available to them (1.3 out of 5 vs 1.9, P
