Caring for the Caregiver: Are We Doing Enough?

Family members and professional caregivers are the backbone of home-based care for seniors, children and individuals with disabilities and chronic conditions. Oftentimes, family members and providers are not adequately supported (emotionally, mentally, and physically) through their caregiving experience, which often leads to decreased morale and lack of productivity known as the second victim phenomenon. Learn how innovative payor source strategies, social communities, employer sponsored programs, and digital breakthroughs are supporting caregivers, and the individuals who receive care. This panel will also discuss how employers are recruiting and training a new diverse caregiving workforce, better supporting working caregivers, and establishing comprehensive family leave strategies.
