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