Eldercare is now one of the fastest growing employee benefits and needs to be on every employer’s agenda.

With an ageing population and people living longer than ever before, many employees are finding themselves part of the ‘sandwich generation’ – balancing work with looking after their own children and possibly grandchildren, along with caring for older family members.

How can we help?

By helping your business to manage and support your valued employees and their families on their ageing journey.

The facts

  • Over 3m workers are juggling work with informal care for sick or older parents/dependents
  • That’s 1 in 7 employees balancing paid work with eldercare responsibilities
  • This will continue to rise in line with ageing workforces and rising life expectancy
  • 90% of working carers are aged 30+ (typically 45+) and often at the peak of their careers
