There are four kinds of people in the world:
Those who have been caregivers,
Those who are caregivers,
Those who will be caregivers, and
Those who will need caregivers.”

THE QUESTION?
IF NOW, OR IN THE FUTURE, YOU OR SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY NEEDS TO CARE FOR AN ELDERLY FAMILY MEMBER HERE, OR ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY, DO YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL, WHAT QUESTIONS TO ASK, OR WHAT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE?


THE ANSWER~

The Family Care Plan© from CARE SOLUTIONS.

The Family Care Plan was developed to give you and your family access to information on community and social services, research and referral services, discounts on preferred provider services in Monterey County, and long-distance caregiver support for elderly family members. The Plan can be coordinated through your employer or provided as an individual Membership. You can have the support you need, when you need it with this innovative new program.

Often the role as caregiver prevents employees from reaching greater success at work. A recent study suggests that two-thirds of people providing care for elderly relatives make significant work sacrifices, which directly impact their employer, as well. Findings revealed:

While these numbers clearly reflect the sacrifices caregivers have made, they are not the only ones affected. The decrease in worker productivity due to elder care responsibilities has impacted corporate America with an estimated loss between $17 billion and $33 billion annually, according to Sandra Timmermann, a gerontologist for New York-based Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., the study’s sponsor.

In response to their employees’ needs, many companies have begun to expand their employee assistance programs. By helping employees balance work and care giving duties, companies can begin to minimize their losses. With the right resources caregivers can continue to provide valuable assistance to their loved ones, without sacrificing their own careers.

The Family Care Plan© provides an expanded, cost effective level of service for employers and employees facing these problems. Utilizing elder care resources, skills, and expertise, this innovative program is there to help during this often difficult and stressful period. Through our family of home care companies, the innovative Family Care Plan offers discounted services to members, allowing employers and employees to feel in control of their care giving situation, thus lowering the anxiety and stress on everyone involved.
