According to the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, more than 65 million people in the United States provide an average of 20 hours per week of care for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled loved one. Additionally, 70% of employees who provide care for a loved one suffer work-related issues as a result. These issues could be impacting your business’s bottom line.
Employees who are caregivers are more likely to:
- Miss work or come in late/leave early
- Experience significant productivity loss
- Take unpaid leaves of absence or use personal or sick days to provide care
The bottom line: Caregivers need help. Connecting employees to professional senior care providers reduces stress, improves work-life balance, and enhances employee productivity by 50% because it allows them to stay on the job, miss fewer work days, and remain focused at work.
