There's Honor in Asking for Help® Caregiver Wellness Campaign

The There’s Honor in Asking for Help® campaign's mission is to empower employers to advocate and support employees who are caring for a loved one not only to remain employed but to also remain productive in the workplace.

9 Ways Employers can Support the There's Honor in Asking for Help® Caregiver Wellness Campaign
As an employer you have an opportunity to redefine the way you support your employees who care for an elderly or disabled loved one by doing the following:

Be open to flexible work arrangements. Flexibility allows an employee to have the autonomy and control in achieving their work goals while balancing their personal needs. You might use one or more of the following strategies to offer a more flexible schedule for your employees:
  • Flextime
  • Compressed Work Week
  • Part time
  • Modified Job Duties

Encourage employees to access the Emma tool.
Your employee may not know where to start when it comes to caring for an elderly or disabled loved one. Our "Ask Emma" tool will help your employee determine his or her level of wellness as a caring individual. Once submitted, your employee will be provided with immediate feedback and suggested strategies as to where you might start to improve their wellness as a caregiver.

For caregivers who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The loss of a loved one can often feel like being in the midst of a raging storm, alone on a tiny boat in the middle of the ocean. The shore of calm and joy is elusive and there are unpredictable, intense moments of sadness and emptiness and even riptides of anger that leave you shaken, isolated, and lost. The anguish of grief is expected when you have cared for someone you love, but you can navigate your way back to the shore, restore your joy, and reclaim your peace.
