The United States of Caregivers

Caregiving is an Employer Issue 1.jpgCaregiving isn’t just a challenge facing an individual. It’s an employer issue as well.  In the US, more than 1 in 6 working employees are assisting with the care of a family member, most often an elderly family member. That’s a lot of time off-work caring for loved ones.

  • According to the AARP, 15% of the American workforce is involved in caring for a loved one — that’s around 24 million people
  • 22% of all middle age workers between the ages of 45-64 are caring for a parent.
  • But caregivers are not just older workers: 13% are between 18 and 29.
