Training, Seminars and Workshops

In America today, we are seeing an unprecedented trend: there are more older people than ever before and there are more working-aged persons struggling to balance their job responsibilities with care of an older relative. There are 56 million family caregivers and two-thirds of them work outside the home.

Conflicts inevitably arise between the demands of elder care and work. However, few managers and business owners have the knowledge and skills needed to prevent these conflicts – or to minimize their negative impact on productivity in the work place.

Bringing Elder Care Home specializes in providing training to increase your effectiveness in dealing with elder care work conflicts.

Our seminars can help:

  • Managers who must deal with day-to-day conflicts brought on by elder care work/conflicts
  • Human Resources Professionals who need to devise programs and policies to minimize productivity losses due to these conflicts, and
  • Leaders of Community Organizations who want to position their organizations to help employers deal effectively with elder care/work conflicts.
  • Employees who need information and skills to balance their reponsibilities for elder care and work.

We can tailor a workshop or training session to meet your organization’s specific needs.

  •  Seminar for Employees:
    Elder Care and Work: Finding the Balance
  •  Seminar for Managers:
    Elder Care and Employee Productivity: Win-Win-Win Solutions
  • Keynote:
    The Power of Caring: How Family Care Is Transforming Our World
  • Seminar:
    Seminar for Community Leaders: Your Success Plan for Tapping the Employed Family Caregiver Market
