What support you need as a working family caregiver

Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, developed the Daughters in the Workplace public education program offering free resources to help working family caregivers feel empowered to talk to their employers about their needs, while also identifying caregiving support that may be available. This program also provides information to help employers understand what their employees want and need as caregivers. Over the next several weeks we will discuss this topic in detail.

How to protect yourself in this heat

We are all aware of the need to protect ourselves from too much sun, exposure burning our skin and creating pain for now and damage for later.  What we don’t always think about is the loss of electrolytes, the minerals that control our body’s fluid balance.  These are lost with dehydration from heat and exercise.
