The toll on caregivers

In 2020, 53 million Americans reported providing unpaid care to a loved one.¹

 

6 in 10 caregivers report working while caregiving and the majority have experienced at least one work-related impact.¹

 

Reducing that incredible strain on your employees can help provide multiple improvements to their lives and advantages for your business.
