More than 65 million Americans are acting as caregivers to a loved one - a role that they take on above and beyond their duties at work. And as caregivers, they’re more prone to depression, stress and heart disease. All of which has a very real and quantifiable impact on workplace performance, absenteeism and the bottom line.
