Caregiving in the "Next Normal" Toolkit

HR professionals have been suddenly tasked with the new role of "Corporate Caregiver," helping their employees balance the collision of work & home life now more than ever.

Many employee caregivers are challenged with caring for elder loved ones amidst the pandemic; others are providing what feels like constant time and attention to children during the work day. Many elder caregivers must remain engaged at work while coping with the fear of their loved one's safety in elder care facilities. Parents are wondering how to approach the summer and then school this fall. Will distance learning continue, and, if so, for how long?

Has your organization developed a plan to help support your employees as they move forward to this "next normal" and beyond?

To help your employees strategically move forward in this new world, Torchlight has created a resource kit that can help in even the most difficult caregiving scenarios.

We have come together and strategically aligned staff and resources to respond quickly with critical guides and tools in the form of a downloadable "Caregiving in the Next Normal.”

Support the employee caregivers on your team with the following helpful assets:
