About the Book:
Working Daughter is a revelatory look at who’s caring for our aging population and how these unpaid family caregivers are trying to manage caring for their parents, raising their children, maintaining relationships, and pursuing their careers. It follows the author, who was enjoying a fast-paced career in marketing and raising two children when both of her parents were diagnosed with terminal illnesses on the same day. In the challenges she faced and the choices she made, readers will learn how they can navigate their own caregiving experiences and prepare for when they are inevitably called on to care for their parents.

Working Daughter sparks the conversation we so desperately need to have about women and the workplace. It’s time we talk about how family caregivers and their employers will face the impact of a rapidly aging society. Working Daughter provides a blueprint for women and a call to action for business leaders and policy makers. This book is for women who want straight talk and real advice about the challenges of eldercare, the choices they will need to make, the aspects of caregiving they can control, and that which they cannot. And finally, Working Daughter shows family caregivers how they can achieve the caregiver’s gain—the underreported but well-documented upside to caring for an aging parent.
