Did you know that issues related to family caregivers cost American businesses, including small businesses, between
$17 and $34 billion annually due to absenteeism, lost productivity and increased health care costs?
The Business of Caregiving As part of our effort to raise awareness among New York business leaders about the needs of family caregivers, EmblemHealth co-presented "The Business of Caregiving" forum with the New York City Partnership for Family Caregiving Corps (NYCP4FCC). The event also served to highlight the many solutions and resources available to help family caregivers.
Our innovative Care for the Family Caregiver Program serves the growing community of nonprofessionals who provide unpaid care to their loved ones, often at great personal cost. We will continue to look for new ways to connect those who receive care with those who provide it professionally - including doctors, nurses and home attendants — and unpaid family caregivers.
