Author: Ferreira Resende M.C.

Abstract: This paper aims to identify in literature the repercussions of the new/old work elderly caregivers concerning their health care and their current support. The study is based on the Workers' Health area. According to literature, the occupation of "elderly caregiver" seems to be an activity mainly developed in the informal sector, by some relative, usually women, and it has brought consequences for the quality of the elderly care and for the caregiver's health, causing low back pains, depression and hypertension. The National Health Politics of the Elderly is modern when it talks about the care for this population and the family caregiver is a partner. However, studies on this kind of work are still necessary to help making public policies.
