A Silent Crisis: Working Caregivers
Are Begging For Help

By Gema G. Hernandez, D.P.A.
(Page 3 of 3)

In my years helping working caregivers have found that a successful caregiver support program goes beyond information and provides intervention, services and ongoing support tailored to the needs of each individual caregiver. I have also found that if corporations see this as an imposition, not as a quality control measure, they will never make the investment in the program. It is up to us caregivers to make the corporate world aware of our needs and to support efforts that will alleviate our ongoing burden. Contact your human resource department and find out what they offer in terms of working caregivers, and if they donít, let them know that assistance exists to support corporations to deal with this challenging and growing crisis.

For corporations to maintain their competitive advantage in the global market they need dedicated and experience workers willing to give 120% to their jobs this is achievable is they now that corporations are willing to help with their family caregiving responsibilities. The rewards are there for companies that provide assistance to the working caregivers. This is an investment that at the end will save money and generate goodwill for all.
