A recent AARP Oregon study found that 52% of businesses reported that elder care is having an effect on employee performance. And that number is going to rise in the coming years as baby boomers age and younger generations spend more time and energy on figuring out how to keep their parents happy and healthy in their senior years.
But even while more and more businesses are being affected by the elder-care demands on their employees, very few have programs in place to help ease the burden and facilitate productivity.
