Dementia care…the downside of working from home

There are some good reasons for choosing to work from home.

No more commuting in traffic, greater productivity, flexible time management to fulfil work and family responsibilities, particularly for caregivers of aging parents.

More than half a million people live with dementia in Canada, and it is predicted that this number will rise to nearly 1 million by 2033.

Caregivers of persons with dementia face higher levels of distress than those caring for other seniors.  

Caregivers of persons with dementia are more likely to be frequently absent from work.  As the burden of care increases with the progression of the disease, caregivers may be forced to take disability leave, require medical care, and endure further financial hardship.  

The adverse effects of dementia impact caregivers, the health care system, the economy, and workplaces.

We must act now to implement dementia prevention strategies.

I’m looking forward to discussing dementia prevention and advice to caregivers with Matt Del Vecchio and Corrie Sirota on ‘Life Unrehearsed’ CJAD 800 Montreal on Saturday 11 September @ 3:00 p.m.

See the BIG picture. Focus on what’s important

Enabling businesses and people to be successful. This is my mission, my life’s work. It’s always been what I have done wherever I’ve been employed, called to serve or to volunteer. An experienced business leader, my core values are truth, integrity, and respect. I believe that values-based leadership is critical for organizational success that is enabled by an engaged and empowered workforce. Working over the years in several senior marketing, communications, and executive leadership mandates for global, financial, healthcare, and non-profit organizations, it has been through times of transformation and difficult change that I have done my best work. In my blog posts, I share my perspectives on leadership, marketing and strategy that are based on my key learnings and observations over the years, all with the objective of helping others reach for success. In my spare time, I enjoy the beauty of nature which I reproduce in my pastel paintings.
