Are you jeopardizing your job due to caring for a loved one?

Some startling statistics show many family caregivers may be placing their jobs at risk due to their caregiving responsibilities of a loved one.

According to the Family Caregiver Usage & Attitudes Survey in 2014, 33% of family caregivers spend more than 30 hours per week on caregiving, making it almost the equivalent of a full-time job. Other interesting highlights of the survey include:

  • 50% of caregivers have made changes to their work schedule to accommodate their caregiving duties.
  • 30% often arrived late or left early.
  • 17% missed a significant amount of work.
  • 2/3 report experiencing distractions related to caregiving (phone calls, email, emotional distractions, etc.) while working.
  • 60% of family caregivers say their caregiving duties have a negative effect on their job.

What prevents family caregivers from asking for help or uncovering resources?

  • Due to Guilt?
  • A Lack of awareness for available resources?
  • Financial concerns surrounding affordability?

What are other reasons family caregivers are reluctant to ask for assistance?
