Did you know that on average, a caregiver will spend around 24 hours a week caring for an aging parent or loved one? And out-of-pocket expenses average around $7,000? Those are staggering statistics and something we don’t typically hear about in the workplace setting.
At some point during an average career, employees will find themselves having to care for their aging parents. This might be due to sudden and unexpected illness, or just the natural aging process. On top of that, many of those caregivers are also tending to their own children. The stress of balancing providing care and maintaining a career can be immense and almost too much to handle. Luckily, there are options for those caregivers to help assist them with their caregiver roles, financials, and balancing their stress levels.
