Webinar Description

Consider this: Caregiver health problems cost U.S. companies about $13 billion in increased health care costs per year. Two leading insurers report that caregivers who go out on Family Medical Leave to care for an adult family member are four times more likely to file a Long Term Disability claim and five times more likely to file a Short Term Disability claim. Many employers are working to address wellness at the workplace but many may not realize that caregiving is the silent wellness killer.

Participate in this webinar to learn caregiving's impact on health and wellness programs, how to help employees recognize caregiving challenges, and early keys to minimizing negative health outcomes.

Following this presentation, participants will:
  • recognize early caregiving issues.
  • understand the negative effects of caregiving on health and wellness.
  • identify several no- or low-cost efforts to improve caregiving wellness at their organizations.
