Federico, Richard
CUPA-HR Journal, v55 n2 p30-33 Fall-Win 2004
Many employers today have work/life programs and benefits in place to assist their employees in maintaining a healthy balance between their job duties and the responsibilities they bear in their daily lives. One such responsibility with which aging baby boomers are increasingly being charged is caring for an elderly loved one. Although many employers currently provide elder care programs and services, utilization is typically low. This article identifies some communication and education failures that tend to hinder program utilization and offers tips on how employers can better communicate available resources to their employees.
