Self-reported health impacts of caregiving by age and income among participants of the Canadian 2012 General Social Survey.

CONCLUSION: Providing care impacts health behaviours and mental health regardless of age and income. However, our findings suggest that older caregivers (who are most often women)-who provide the most hours of care and on reduced incomes relative to younger caregivers-appear less impacted in terms of health behaviours, perhaps as a result of fewer competing demands relative to younger caregivers. Taken together, these findings suggest that support systems must consider caregiver impacts that vary in complex ways across age, sex, and income. PMID: 31091060 [PubMed - in process]
