The workplace may have another taboo topic: Being a decent, responsible person who takes care of aging parents or other adults with disabilities.
Analysts at Northwestern Mutual have raised that possibility in a new slice of data from a poll the company organized earlier this year.
The sample included 1,400 Americans ages 18 or older who were acting as caregivers.
About 66% of the survey participants were working, and 60% of all of the participants were working full-time.
But 24% of the working caregivers said they did not think their colleagues knew they were caregivers.
