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.
