The Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH) and AARP have released a practical toolkit to help employers of all sizes create workplace policies that help support employees who are family caregivers.

Called Supporting Caregivers in the Workplace: A Practical Guide for Employers, the guide contains a series of tools, resources, and guidance. It provides employers with the essential information they need to understand family caregiving issues, the challenges facing both employers and employees, and what employers can do to create and implement successful workplace caregiving policies and programs. The toolkit is divided into several major sections beginning with an overview of the business case for workplace caregiving programs. 

The guide is the latest in a series of collaborative workplace caregiving initiatives between NEBGH and AARP, a John A. Hartford Foundation-grantee.
