From North Dakota's AARP comes this insightful report on how employers can gain by helping their employees cope with the challenges of eldercare. Titled "How Employers Can Support Working Caregivers," the report begins:
"Addressing caregiver support issues in the workplace is not just a benevolent response; it's smart business. It is reported that companies reap a $3-$14 return on every $1 they spend on eldercare benefits.Today's Baby Boomers may well be called "the Eldercare Generation." As more employees remain in the labor force and their parents live longer, businesses have begun stepping up to help overwhelmed workers better balance their professional and family responsibilities."
