Caregiving Resources

Today, 43.5 million adults are providing care for someone 50 or older. Seventy-five percent of these caregivers were employed while caregiving and nearly 70 percent said they needed to make a workplace accommodation related to their caregiving responsibilities. Productivity losses related to caregiving cost U.S. employers $2,110 on average per employee annually. AARP provides a variety of resources to help your employees and community members succeed in this important endeavor:

  • AARP Foundation's Prepare to Care: A Planning Guide for Families (PDF) is a five-step program designed to guide an employee through the process of becoming a caregiver. Included with each step are checklists and assessments to help in the transition to caregiving.
  • AARP's Caregiver Resource Center is an online site providing information and tools on a wide range of caregiving topics, including tips on hiring a home care worker, preparing your home for caregiving and providing long-distance care.
