The Importance of Curated Caregiver Resources
Caregivers have become health care workers, and here's what they need.
THE PLIGHT OF FAMILY caregivers has received warranted attention during the pandemic. No one can be sure how many more family caregivers exist beyond the 54 million that were reported in pre-pandemic studies.
There's been a lot of talk and action around employers offering benefits related to family caregiving, especially paid time off and leave. I've spent the last few years advocating for solutions that make life easier for family caregivers, whether these were assistance programs that companies offered in employee assistance programs or technology solutions that made life easier. Make no mistake, these are needed.
