Journal writing provides a nonthreatening way to explore different thoughts, ideas, and topics without being concerned about audience presentation. The process of writing can facilitate reflection and allow you to express your feelings regarding your educational experiences, as well as clarify your thinking.
Family caregivers provide a significant amount of care and support to their loved ones, often without compensation. The family caregiver role often requires financial and emotional sacrifice.
- Explain the role unpaid caregivers have in U.S. society.
- Describe a policy solution that would support family caregivers. An example might include a tax deduction for financial expenses incurred by caregivers.
- How do you think the cost of the policy solutions they describe should be passed on to taxpayers, and how would you justify this?
- Do you think family members should be obligated to care for loved ones with their personal financial resources, or should the cost be supported through taxes?
Your journal entry should be 250 to 400 words long. No outside research is expected and, therefore, no references are needed.
