Ask: How many of you are currently helping care for an older family member? Or do you know of anyone who it a family caregiver? There was a time when work-life issues were all about kids. When Baby boomers began entering the work-force, there was an influx of women with small children. So the whole work-life balance issue was about child care. Now, another demographic trend taking center stage is promising to have an even bigger impact on U.S. Business. So the question now is: IS ELDERCARE THE NEW CHILDCARE? According to a 2006 MetLife Mature Market Institute study, nearly 60% of those caring for a senior adult are employed most of them – full time. As the world’s leading Home Care Provider, HISC has a passion and comitment to provide quality home care for the aging parents and relatives of working families. So if you are one of those 60% caring for a family member and also working……….you are not alone.

<ul><li>Conducted in the U.S. and Canada by Home Instead Senior Care, this study revealed that nearly one-third of adults in the U.S. have a major communication obstacle with their parents that stems from continuation of the “parent-child role.” </li></ul>The 40-70 Rule Unfortunately, a lack of family communication can lead to problems for seniors such as misuse of medications, self-neglect—even accidents. So, the goal of the 40-70 campaign is to provide practical ways for adult children to start talking with their parents now .
The 40-70 Guide <ul><li>At the center of the 40-70 campaign is a guide of conversation starters for sensitive senior-care subjects. Here’s an example: </li></ul><ul><li>Your 70-year-old widowed mother has just been diagnosed with macular degeneration, a disease that causes deterioration of eyesight. How do you begin a conversation with her about the possible ramifications of this disease? </li></ul>
<ul><li>Good communication also is vital to helping families know when it’s time to seek additional resources. Often, both adult children and their loved ones can benefit from outside help, such as a that provided by professionals like our Home Instead CAREGivers SM . But the only way that will happen is if these families can talk about it. </li></ul>Talk About Getting Help
