Why do Companies Offer the Program?
A company knows it can only get the best when an employee is at their best. They understand the stress and difficult challenges that employed caregivers must juggle on a daily basis. Balancing work and taking care of the needs of an elderly loved one is no easy task. Companies recognize that the issues facing employed caregivers also affect their bottom line—an impact that cost American businesses up to $33 billion annually.
Many employers are proactive in addressing this growing issue by bringing The Caring Workplace to their employees. Now, through this specialized program, a caregiver can find a way to balance work and their responsibilities as caregiver of an elderly loved one.
