Eldercare Calculator
Companies who want to quantify the costs of eldercare expenses incurred by them and their employees can check out this Eldercare Calculator. Enter the size of your business, an average hourly wage for employees, and the number of employees who are working caregivers, and you can get an estimate on the lost productivity. Understanding these costs can be helpful as you design benefits programs that enable employees to meet their caregiving demands and increase productivity.
