Employers Urged to Provide Support for Working Caregivers

LTC impact on the worksite is everyone’s problem!

Laurie Edwards-Tate says in Washington Times (5/11) “LifeCycles,” that “once again, workers who find the competing demands of work and caregiving to be too much of a strain are forced to choose family over their jobs.” She notes that “an AARP study found that caregiving employees are increasingly taking leaves of absence, working less hours, or quitting altogether to cope with their caregiving responsibilities.” According to Edwards-Tate, just as “employers stepped forward with resources” when “working mothers faced challenges with quality child care options,” the “same can be true with caregivers in the workforce.”
