Why business Leaders Care About Family Caregiving:
For nearly 66 million Americans, the workday doesn’t end at 5 pm. In the US, one in three people leave work and go on to provide regular and unpaid care to a loved one who is elderly, sick or disabled. It’s called family caregiving. For the family caregiver, the costs are often financial, physical and emotional.
For businesses, costs – currently in the range of 17-34 billion dollars – come in the form of lost productivity, absenteeism, increased heathcare costs and more.
Caregiving – You cannot pay it away, pray it away or prescribe it away. While all three are necessary, ultimately, you have to go through it, and it is our hope that you will grow through it. You are not alone.
