Timely Tip: Caregiving’s Impact at Work

If you think you’re in the minority feeling stressed and pulled in different directions by your job because you are caregiving for a loved one, think again.

A survey of 935 caregivers in 2004 by the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP found the following:

  • 57% reported having to go to work late, leave early or take time off for caregiving
  • 17% had to take a leave of absence
  • 10% switched from full-time to part-time work schedules
  • 5% lost some job benefits
  • 4% had to turn down a promotion
  • 6% had to quit work
  • 3% opted for early retirement

You can read the full story on ways to balance career pressures with caregiving obligations in Caregivers and the Workplace – How to Get the Support You Need, a feature article in the August 2007 edition of Caregiver’s Home Companion.
