The New York State Caregiving & Respite Coalition's Annual Conference will be held on Wednesday October 15, 2014 at the Desmond Albany Hotel & Conference Center. Further details will be announced shortly.
The Working Caregiver
The theme for the 2014 NYSCRC conference is "The Working Caregiver". The decision to focus this year's conference on the working caregiver comes at a time when the issues surrounding those with dual responsibilities as employees at work and informal caregivers at home are receiving more and more attention. A report released in 2012, Best Practices in Workplace Eldercare, highlighted the ways employers can better support their employees with access to support services and gives specific examples of employee benefits that businesses have offered to make balancing work and caregiving easier for employees.
