The number of families providing care for a senior loved one is on the rise, with many overly-stressed full-time employees having to leave work in order to provide care for a loved one. Is family caregiving impacting your business? The Walnut Creek senior home care team at Hired Hands Homecare suggests asking yourself the following questions:
- Do you have employees who are arriving to work late or leaving early to tend to family caregiving issues?
- Are your employees taking unpaid leaves of absence or using personal or sick days to provide care for family members?
- Have any of your employees refused new assignments, relocation opportunities, or work-related travel because of family caregiving issues?
- Has an employee left your business to provide full-time care for a family member?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, now is the time to look into partnering with a skilled home care provider to assist your employees while ensuring your business isn’t paying the price for reduced productivity due to stressed and absent employees.
Working with a professional home care agency like Hired Hands Homecare for short-term in-home care and education on eldercare-related topics can put a wedge in the revolving door of lost and unproductive employees. With our personalized senior respite care services, resources, and emotional support, employee retention and job satisfaction will increase along with your company’s bottom line.
