The number of households providing care for an elderly loved one is on the rise, with many stressed full-time employees having to leave work in order to provide full-time care for a family member. Is family caregiving affecting your business? Here are a few questions to help you determine that:
- Do you have employees who are arriving to work late or having to leave early to attend to family caregiving issues?
- Are your employees taking unpaid leaves of absence or using personal or sick days to provide care to family members?
- Have any of your employees refused relocation or work-related travel or refused new assignments, stating family caregiving issues as the reason?
- Has an employee left your company to provide full-time care for a family member?
If you answered yes to some of these questions, now is the time to consider working with a skilled home healthcare provider to both assist your employees and ensure your business isn’t losing precious money and productivity due to stressed and absent employees.
