The need to support workers who provide unpaid care for a family member is a growing reality for employers (large and small). As the population grows older and life expectancies increase, the need will grow significantly for the next ten to twenty years.
As many as one in six full-time or part-time employees care for an elderly or disabled family member, according to a fairly recent Gallop poll.
The role of family caregivers involves everything from arranging or coordinating, services/support, to navigating the complex health care system, to performing actual care in the home — all while balancing workplace demands and responsibilities.
Employers can help families save time and reduce stress – while improving workplace productivity, employee morale and loyalty – by connecting their employees with elder care resources through access to knowledgeable specialists and appropriate providers for family care services.
