1. It would be great if employers considered covering at least partial costs of respite services outside of work hours. Even for employed caregivers, “after logging a full day of work for our employers, informal employee caregivers like myself are then providing an additional 29 hours a week of caregiving.” Don’t they deserve a break to tend to their own needs, protect their own health and have quality of life? When such outcomes exist, cost savings in avoided out of home placements and more productive employees have been demonstrated.
