There are 44 million caregivers in the United States and 64% of those are employed full time.
The added stress and responsibilities of being a working caregiver may lead to decreased productivity, absenteeism and even employee turnover. Many employees arrive late, leave early, and take extended breaks to tend to caregiving needs. Typically, workers are present but distracted, as phone calls, appointments and follow-up usually must occur during working hours.
