Why should your business be concerned with long term care?
55% of working caregivers report missing time from work because of caregiving responsibilities. (Work/Family Elder Directions, 1995)
By the year 2005, almost 40% of the America workforce will be in the prime age group (40-54) for caring for aging parents. ("The Aging of America is Making 'Elder Care' a Big Workplace Issue," WSJ, Feb. 1994)
With the next 25 years, 1 in 3 workers will provide some type of long term care. ("Group LTC Insurance: It's Not Just for the Elderly," Broker World, May 1997)
In addition, the financial impact on your business could be significant.
The cost in lost productivity to your business has been estimated at $2500 per employed long term care giver - for an annual national total of $17 billion. ("The Aging of America is Making 'Elder Care' a Big Workplace Issue," WSJ, Feb. 1994)
