Care for Yourself

A population shift is taking place. People are living longer and an increasing number of us are becoming family caregivers. The ability to manage our work-life becomes complicated when we are a caregiver and often it is the caregiver who puts off their own needs to meet the needs of others. Below are some tips to help employee caregivers manage stress and attempt to maintain an integrated work-life both at work and with personal obligations.
