Trotz Pflege kein Vereinbarkeitsproblem? Typische Arrangements und Ressourcen erwerbstätiger pflegender Söhne
We carried out comparative case studies in eleven German companies and conducted interviews with male employees caring for an elderly parent. The overwhelming majority of the sons claim not to have problems in reconciling work and care, although they spend significant time at care work. In the paper we try to explain this pattern by looking at their typical work and care arrangements. We show that male care is organized all around full time employment.
