Abstract

This paper examines the impact of family caregiving on the allocation of time among labor market, caregiving, and leisure activities. A reduced form regression model is the framework for analysis of these simultaneous decisions. The analysis indicates that the number of caregivers and type of responsibilities assumed are significantly related to the caregiving time allocation decision. Alternatively, leisure and employment decisions are predominantly determined by the financial status of the caregiver and health status of both the caregiver and the impaired elderly relative.
