Elder Care Company Serves as a Free Resource to Employees Seeking Senior
SEATTLE, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A Place for Mom, the nation's largest referral service of senior care options, was recently recognized in a Good Morning America segment as a free and trusted resource to turn to when an employer does not offer eldercare assistance as a part of employee benefits.
"Our team of elder care advisors helps 15,000 families a month find a variety of elder care options such as assisted living, nursing homes, homecare and residential care homes," said Pamala Temple, president and founder of A Place for Mom. "Our service is a great resource for caregivers who are juggling the workload of a job and a loved one. By providing education and resources A Place for Mom helps families make informed decisions about the quality of life for an elderly loved one."
According to Tory Johnson, Workplace Contributor on Good Morning America and the CEO of Women For Hire, "There are an estimated 16 million caregivers working full-time in the U.S., according to MetLife -- so sometimes in the absence of formal benefits, you must be the one to ask for what you need and work with your boss to come to an informal arrangement. There are also sometimes free resources that mirror the same types of benefits offered by some employers such as A Place for Mom, a free nationwide service for families seeking elder care solutions."
