Caregiver support as an employee benefit is becoming an expectation and rightfully so. Providing support to the caregivers in your organization makes sense for you and for them. Working caregiver challenges include significantly higher rates of depression, chronic pain, and other physical and emotional challenges. The majority of working caregivers also report they have little or no support in managing the duties of caregiving. This leads to increased absenteeism, higher healthcare costs, and lost productivity to the tune of billions of dollars every year.
The alska secure platform has been helping caregivers better manage the details of care as a stand alone solution for over five years. More effective and time saving communication, secure document storage, medication and biometric tracking and trending all improve ease of collaboration and promote better outcomes for everyone involved.
We know that caregivers who have the right information and resources are more confident and positively impact the health of their loved ones. Caregivers can join our facilitated support groups and live webinars from the comfort of home, on a lunch break or even on their daily commute home. Knowing they are not alone while discussing their struggles eases stress and anxiety.
When a crisis occurs or there is additional guidance needed, our professional advocates are available to help create a personal plan or offer guidance. We designed Connected Caregiving so the caregiver can utilize the level of support they are comfortable with and need. We know the journey of caregiving can change in a moment and we are there at every turn.
