Free Workplace Eldercare Seminar “Navigating the Senior Care Maze”
How could eldercare education support your company’s productivity? An average of 20 percent of any company’s workforce is also providing up to 20 hours a week of eldercare services to an aging family member or friend. That means extra absences, loss of mindshare, and potential decrease in productivity. If education now could help your employees balance handling of family care and emergencies with work responsibilities; manage stress and protect their health; and learn about available resources, wouldn’t that be a good investment for your operation? Crossroads can help. Our eldercare seminars are provided at no cost to workplaces and connect caregivers of elders with resources to make the journey easier. Often a brown-bag session over the noon hour, these seminars address a major work-life balance issue for employer and working caregiver alike. Topics include:
- Housing and home care pros and cons
- Funding options including information on Veterans benefits, Medicaid and Medicare
- How to deal with the challenges of caregiving
Eldercare seminars are presented by Crossroad’s founder Elizabeth Harrell and include a question-and-answer period. There is no charge for the seminar to the employer or the employee and the services provided by Crossroads for individual consultations are at no charge as well.
