What does family caregiving have to do with your business or organization?

The cost of lost productivity or replacement of full-time employees who are family caregivers is estimated to be at least $33 billion annually and rapidly increasing. That figure does not include the increase in business health care costs due to caregiver stress-related illness. And, these figures do not include others costs such as the loss of knowledge and experience that leaves with an employee when they feel that they can longer juggle their job and caregiving responsibilities. Nor does it include the missed opportunity for hiring a desired future employee who is looking for a company that fully addresses their current family caregiving responsibility or future concerns. Furthermore, with the increase in life expectancy and the projections for future Alzheimer’s diagnoses alone, these costs to businesses are set to rise at a staggering rate.

What can be done to mitigate the losses that businesses experience?

Some businesses have started to address this issue by implementing programs such as flex schedules and part-time options. A few progressive employers have begun to offer on-site elder care. But there is much more that needs to be done to mitigate the costs.
