Caregivers in the Workplace

OCES helps caregivers navigate one of life's hardest but most rewarding jobs. One out of every five employees in the U.S. is a caregiver to a family member or loved one. The changing dynamic of families and the diversity of your workplace means that some of your employees are raising their children/grandchildren while others are taking care of older relatives.

Caregiving takes a financial, emotional, and physical toll on employees. Employers can rest assured that our OCES Team will work closely with each working-caregiver to provide a seamless, efficient, and supportive experience.
