We take a look at the impact of caregiving and working outside the home on both caregivers and their employers.
Caring for an aging or disabled loved one is one of the hardest and most demanding jobs someone can take on. As our aging population rapidly increases, employers need to be aware of the growing number of family caregivers in their workforce and implement policies to support them.
Dr. Larry Weiss, Founder and CEO at the Center for Healthy Aging (CHA) in Reno, NV, will be leading our conversation about caregivers who are juggling work and caregiving tasks. He will be joined by a panel of expert caregivers who have faced the challenge of working while providing care to an aging or disabled loved one.
CHA partnered with Nevada employers, to survey their workforce and develop focus groups to generate ideas for programs to provide eldercare service and support in the work place. Dr. Weiss will share the survey results showing the impact of caregiving and working outside the home on both caregivers and their employers, and our panelists will provide insight into their day to day rewards and challenges of caring for an aging or disabled loved one.
