The Caregiver Burden

(5-7 minute read)

If you’re working and caring for an aging loved one or have employees or customers who are, you’re not alone. Caregiving issues impact both caregivers and their employers. Caregiving impacts 1 in 5 U.S. workers, according to a 2015 AARP report, and the issue is growing. By 2030, the proportion of the U.S. population aged 65+ will double to about 71 million older adults.

Caregiving issues drive $50 billion of business loss annually due to things like attrition, lower productivity and increased health care costs. Most people – and organizations – don’t have the resources or expertise to handle these issues on their own.

To address these challenges, Axios HR has partnered with Carallel to introduce a comprehensive caregiver support solution for their clients called MyCareDesk, which helps caregivers reduce stress and organizations improve productivity. The solution blends digital tools with guidance from senior care experts so employees can manage their caregiving responsibilities all in one place and have more time to focus on work and their own families.

“We understand the challenges caregivers face and we want to make it easier for caregivers who juggle many responsibilities,” says Troy Mills, President, Carallel, LLC. “Every caregiver’s journey is unique and by providing personalized support and resources we help both individuals and organizations perform at their best.”

In addition to information and tools across a wide range of topics and real-time access to experienced Care Advocates, MyCareDesk features different series of articles on timely topics for caregivers including a new series on dementia. Articles explore issues like dementia screening, challenging behaviors and the best ways to communicate with a loved one with dementia.
