Chapter 3 focuses on the demands of providing care. It explores how families found support in managing the costs of care, including money, time, and emotion. It first addresses the financial responsibilities of elder care and contrasts those voluntarily-assumed obligations with the somewhat-punitive state filial responsibility laws. It then looks at the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which is the primary source of legal recognition for the time involved in caregiving. Lastly, the chapter explores how best to protect the caregiver from abuse.
