Implications for Employers

The National Alliance for Caregiving and Center for Productive Aging, Towson
University conducted a study to evaluate the ability of eldercare programs
and their impact on employee presenteeism at work. This is the first time
anyone has used a presenteeism scale for this type of evaluation. LifeCare,
Inc. funded this 18-month study to examine the extent to which workplace
caregiving programs helped the employees who used them. A large managed
healthcare company employed the family caregivers who were participants in
this study. See the Report (PDF)
