Caring for our caregivers during the pandemic and beyond

#NationalCaregiversDay, celebrated on February 18, takes on even greater importance as we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents, unpaid caregivers of adults, and parent-caregivers continue to experience higher incidences of depression, substance abuse, and stress. And nurses and other healthcare professions who remain burdened by unparalleled demands are also considering leaving the profession. Understand how healthcare organizations and employers can best support caregivers with these insights, and dive deeper into topics including:

  • medium and longer-term strategies healthcare organizations can consider to support their workforces
  • the state of unpaid caregivers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and how employers can help address this crisis
  • the evolution of the “Care at Home” model
  • why working parents and mothers are seeking flexibility, respect, and support
