Family Caregiver Support Program

Caregivers Services offers tools for employees, offering extra support in the challenging role of caregiver.

Why services for caregivers?

In the latest estimates, nearly 60% of caregivers work at least part-time.

The Family Caregiver Support Program is for the working caregiver to provide extra support in their dual and at times challenging role as an employee and a caregiver.

Research has shown that caregivers often experience substantial stresses and are at a greater risk for health problems than the non-caregiver population. Studies have shown that prolonged caregiving can adversely affect one’s physical or psychological health, current and future earning capability, and the ability to meet personal needs.

The National Caregiving Alliance and AARP study found that 49% of caregivers reported depression, and 50% reported that stress has affected their own health.

Many caregivers report concerns about the stress they experience while caring for a loved one with special needs and working full-time.
