60% of caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s or another dementia were employed in the past year while providing help.
Those who are employed while providing care to someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia suffer from stress. Many have had to decrease their hours, and rearrange their schedules. Fifty-seven percent reported sometimes needing to go in late or leaving early. Others reported having to take a leave of absence or quit their job.
The Broyles Foundation partners with businesses to provide in-house resources, training, education, and counseling for employees dealing with caregiving situations. We provide a game plan of practical, life-changing strategies based on our own experiences in caring for our loved ones.
For business customers, the Broyles Foundation offers a one-hour course to help employees respond warmly and effectively when serving those who are living with dementia. We help create a friendly, calm atmosphere for all involved.
