Why business Leaders Care About Family Caregiving:

For nearly 66 million Americans, the workday doesn't end at 5 pm. In the US, one in three people leave work and go on to provide regular and unpaid care to a loved one who is elderly, sick or disabled. It's called family caregiving. For the family caregiver, the costs are often financial, physical and emotional.

For businesses, costs - currently in the range of 17-34 billion dollars - come in the form of lost productivity, absenteeism, increased heathcare costs and more.

Additional information about this program is available in this flyer.
