With the rising tide of the Boomer generation, increasingly more full-time employed adult children are finding themselves in the position of full-time family caregiver for their aging parents. Due to increased absenteeism, more unpaid leaves, and decreased productivity, companies are facing a growing need to address eldercare needs where they used to address childcare needs.
The greatest needs for working family caregivers are:
- Flexibility in work schedules
- Information about services and aging in general
- Support from coworkers and supervisors
- Help in making decisions about care options and related issues
There are a variety of offerings that a company eldercare program can use to address these needs, such as:
- Work time flexibility
- Financial assistance
- Phone- or Internet-based resources and referrals
- Face-to-face consulting
- Educational activities like on-site seminars and health fair kiosks
