When you’re caring for a family member, making plans feels impossible. Even worse, making back-up plans feels completely out of the questions. Our research proves that point. Consider two stats from our 2017 Family Caregiver Survey:
- 49% of survey respondents say they receive no help from family members.
- 74% say they do not have a back-up or a trained back-up to provide care in their absence if they become ill, have an emergency or want to take a vacation.
As we monitor the spread of the coronavirus, planning becomes even more important. (We’ve got 15 tips to help you plan.)
We’ve launched a solution we hope will help: Family Emergency Plan.
You can use the plan with a Certified Caregiving Consultant™. The plan also takes center stage in our Caregiving Support Benefit so that you have a plan in place that helps you both manage caregiving responsibilities and your work. (Would you like to work with a Consultant but not sure which to choose? We’re happy to match you with a CCC.)
We regularly holding virtual meeting to share and brainstorm your plans. You can watch our videos below.
