Researchers have traditionally viewed paid (work/formal) and unpaid (nonwork/informal) caregiving as separate caregiving domains. Consequently, relatively little is known about adults who are caregivers in both their professional and personal lives, or double-duty and triple-duty caregivers. This talk will present an overview of the work, family and health outcomes of long-term care employees with different nonwork caregiving roles from the Work, Family and Health Study (WFHS) and highlight two recently published WFHS projects focused on double-duty and triple-duty caregivers’ sleep characteristics.

Nicole DePasquale, PhD, MSPH, is an assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine. She has two lines of research related to caregiving. In the first, she examines the work/nonwork interface of long-term care employees with nonwork caregiving roles, or double-duty and triple-duty caregivers, and the work, nonwork and health implications of combining formal and informal caregiving roles. Her second line of research seeks to identify the ways in which caregivers affect patients’ treatment for kidney failure and the effects of patients’ kidney failure on caregivers’ physical health, psychological well-being and functioning in other social roles. Both lines of research aim to inform the development of tailored interventions to address caregivers’ needs as well as improve their health, well-being and management of multiple roles.
