Return to Health Matters

At some point in their lives, many Americans will take on the role of being a caregiver to a family member. In fact, family caregivers provide the majority of long-term care services for people with a chronic illness or disability. Six of every ten family caregivers are employed and juggle their work responsibilities with taking care of a chronically-ill parent, child or both.

To keep them healthy and productive at work and at home, these employees often need help alleviating the stress that caregiving can cause. Employee caregivers may need a respite care provider to give them a much-needed break, or they may want to tap in to a support network to learn strategies that will help them be more effective caregivers. Whatever type of support they need, it is very important for caregivers to take care of themselves both mentally and physically.
