Holiday Season Brings Almost 20 Percent Spike in Elder Care-Related Calls to ComPsych
by Jennifer Hudson, ComPsych(R) Corporation
(BUSINESS WIRE) — Spurred by holiday visits, calls and inquiries related to elder care are expected to increase by 18 percent during November and December, according to a new report on work-life trends by ComPsych. ComPsych Corporation is the world’s largest provider of employee assistance programs and is the pioneer and leading provider of fully integrated EAP, behavioral health, wellness, work-life, HR and FMLA administration services under the GuidanceResources brand.
“People can be surprised and upset by how their parent’s or elder relative’s situation has deteriorated since they saw them last. This can include worsening health, mobility and cognitive problems,” said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, Chairman and CEO of ComPsych. “November is an ideal time for employers to promote work-life programs, reminding employees of available elder care resources before they travel for the holidays to see family.
“Employers also should consider choosing an elder care services provider that integrates work-life with employee assistance programs. This allows employees to be referred for other resources such as counseling and financial/legal guidance related to the multifaceted nature of elder care issues,” he added.
