Daughters in the Workplace

Over the past few decades, we’ve seen increased dialogue and support for women who are navigating their careers as they raise young children. But much less attention and discussion have focused on the unique challenges that come with navigating a career when caring for aging parents. Two-thirds of all caregivers are female, and many feel that they sometimes have to choose between being a good employee and being a good daughter.

Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead network, developed the Daughters in the Workplace℠ public education program offering free resources to help working family caregivers feel empowered to talk to their employers about their needs, while also identifying caregiving support that may be available. This program also provides information to help employers understand what their employees want and need as caregivers.

Learn about the intangible benefits that caregivers experience; conversation starters for your workplace; health tips for working family caregivers; and benefits that working caregivers want and need from their employers.
