November is National Family Caregivers Month

Did you know that...

  • Many of your employees may be caregivers of an elderly loved one in addition to raising their own families and working for you?
  • A caregiver is someone who provides assistance with one or more of a variety of activities including personal care, housekeeping, nutritional needs, money management, transportation, coordination of medical care and much more, which could take as little as a few hours a week, or several hours each day?
  • Productivity and, ultimately, the bottom line are often affected by the tardiness, absenteeism, and stress-related health conditions of employees who bear the responsibility of caregiving?
  • It is estimated that American Business can lose as much as 34 billion dollars each year due to employees' needs to care for loved ones age 50+ ?
  • 39% of Human Resource Directors surveyed felt that their companies did not provide adequate support for Caregivers?
