Day of Caring 2017

  • september 20, 2017

The United Way Day of Caring is the largest one-day volunteer event in central West Virginia. It promotes the spirit and value of volunteerism and demonstrates the power of LIVING UNITED. The Day of Caring generates positive community relationships and helps to develop contacts between volunteers, agencies, and workplaces. This annual event gives each of us an opportunity to roll up our sleeves and work together to make a difference in nonprofit agencies in our community, and for the people they serve.  This year's Day of Caring is on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.

Following a Kick-off rally, teams will complete much needed tasks such as painting, cleaning, landscaping, gardening and mentoring youth. Last year, 625 sets of helping hands volunteered 3,750 hours benefiting 47 central West Virginia projects. Join your friends and neighbors this September and be a part of something big—Day of Caring 2017.

LUNCH AND LEARN: Care for the Caregiver at Work


  • Ongoing DATES

By Carol Matheny, MSN, RN, CHPN
Palliative Care Community Education Coordinator, HospiceCare

Caregiving negatively affects morale, productivity, and costs. And, as a result of family caregiving responsibilities, a tremendous amount of talent, loyalty, and institutional knowledge leaves the workforce every day - either temporarily or full time.  Below are a few brief - yet eye opening - statistics on how this rapidly growing issue impacts businesses.
At any given time, more than 20% of the workforce is dealing with a caregiving situation.

  • 33% of caregivers decrease the number of hours they work
  • 29% quit their job or retire early
  • 22% take a leave of absence
  • 20% change their job status or go part-time
  • 53% of caregivers admit that their job performance is negatively affected
  • 84% make caregiving related phone calls during business hours
  • 68% arrive late or leave early
  • 67% take time off from work during the day

Even when your employees are caring for someone not covered by your health plan, YOUR healthcare cost can go up.

  • 75% of working caregivers report an adverse affect on their own health
  • 50% report 8 additional visits per year to a health care provider (for themselves) as a result of their caregiving responsibilities
  • 22% report a significant impact on their own health

The PalliativeCare Center at HospiceCare would like to be a resource to you and your employees. We would be happy to provide the tools needed to help you and them on the caregiving journey.  Please call today to schedule a free lunch and learn series that will help with caregiving issues such as tips in caring for a loved one, legal issues, grief, financial, and resources that are available in the community.  Please contact Carol Matheny at 304-941-1950 to schedule your workshop today.
