Do you employ caregivers?
The answer is obvious if your organization has a healthcare or eldercare mission. Many members of your staff are professional caregivers. But regardless of what type of business you are in, if you employ people, you most likely employ caregivers. Nearly 65 million Americans care for family, friends or neighbors who are ill, disabled, elderly or special-needs children. Over 70% of these people report being employed at sometime while being a caregiver.1 A recent AARP publication reports that almost one-fifth of people employed in the US are family caregivers.2
