Family caregiving for an older adult is costly -- not only for those who are caregivers but for their employers as well. No longer is the family caregiver necessarily a middle-aged woman; 20% of working caregivers are millennials and almost 50% are men.

Caregiving is an issue that impacts every workplace, often adversely affecting productivity, attendance, and longevity at work. Let's talk about how we can work together to support the health and wellbeing of employee caregivers to ensure that they can be their best at home and at work.

In this webinar, attendees will have a deeper understanding of the challenges of work/life balance facing employee caregivers of older adults, the cost to businesses for overlooking them, and strategies to help support employees who are working as hard at home as they are in the office.

Takeaways Include:

  • Because of the layers of stigma surrounding it, caregiving for an older adult is not commonly discussed at work. However, it is a hidden challenge that affects all demographics, industries, and job descriptions
  • Caregiving for an older adult may have a staggering impact on an employee's physical, emotional, and financial health
  • There ARE solutions to help HR teams support these employees
