In 2015, 34.2 million Americans provided unpaid care to older family members or loved ones. With nearly two-thirds of caregivers working either full or part-time, it’s important for employers to support workers with increased responsibility at home.
Offering eldercare incentives helps employees and employers – employee absenteeism due to caregiving reasons costs businesses $5.1 billion annually.
At Pennsylvania Health & Wellness, we know the importance of offering reasonable assistance to employees. Here’s how employers can aid without breaking the bank:
• On-site eldercare consultants.
• Flexible schedules and remote work plans.
• Provide back-up and part-time care options.
