Abstract

This article examines to what extent the presence or absence, adequacy or inadequacy of formal services impacts on the work trajectory of caregivers to elderly relatives. The article is based on a qualitative study with 20 employed caregivers' whose elderly relatives received homecare services from one of two Montreal CLSCs: Results reveal the key role played by formal services in caregivers' attempts to juggle caregiving demands with those of their employment. They illustrate how the presence or the insufficiency of these services, their adequacy or inadequacy, combined with the other accommodations which caregivers put into place, can be determinants in caregivers' decisions to continue working and in their capacity to function well in the work place.

Résumé

Cet article examine dans quelle mesure la présence ou l'absence' l'adéquation ou l'inadéquation des services formels agissent sur l'insertion au travail des personnes responsables de la prise en charge familiale d'un parent âgé. L'article est basé sur une étude menée auprès de 20 soignant(e)s ayant un emploi rémunéré et dont un proche âgé recevait des services de maintien à domicile d'un de deux CLSC à Montréal en utilisant une méthodologie qualitative. Les résultats font ressortir le rôle-clé joué par les services formels dans les tentatives des personnes soignantes de concilier les exigences de la prise en charge et celles d'un emploi. Ils illustrent comment la présence ou l'insuffisance' l'adéquation ou l'inadéquation de ces services en lien avec d'autres formes d'aménagements mis en place par les soignantes peuvent agir comme facteurs déterminants à la fois dans le maintien ou non d'un emploi par ces dernières et dans le fonctionnement au travail.
