Taking Care of Business and Your Team

Get the Facts and Know Your Options

According to the US General Accounting Office, each year, US employers lose an estimated $11.4 billion in productivity from full-time employees who must take time off from work to fulfill their duties as caregivers. Care giving is a family affair, with 80 percent of all care provided to older adults in the United States being done by a family member. Although businesses are seeing an increase in caregiving-related staffing problems, many do not have a plan in place to assist the caregivers.

Recognizing the negative impact that this changing trend may have on local businesses, Berks Encore created Berks Encore @ Work. This offering provides a variety of on-site group education and counseling services on the most pressing aging issues. Our on-site education sessions are provided by trained staff along with a local elder law attorney when applicable.
