CareGiverHelper provides an innovative branded community to help coordinate

care for loved ones

NEWTON, Mass., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- CareGiverHelper, a provider of social networking solutions/portals for the family caregiver marketplace, announced it will provide a branded community to Ceridian LifeWorks, a leading provider of health and productivity services to more than 18 million individuals and 38,000 companies, organizations and government agencies. The community will be available on the Ceridian LifeWorks participant Web site, called LifeWorks Online.

CareGiverHelper offers families an easy way to organize and share critical information on a secure online platform. Families can put all their support information in one place, such as contact numbers of doctors and caregivers, medications and dosages, a common calendar with appointment reminders, and events such as birthdays or anniversaries. There is also a place to store medical, legal, insurance and other pertinent documents. CareGiverHelper streamlines the organization and communication between family caregivers facilitating daily activities, handling emergencies and assisting with long-term planning.

"Eldercare issues are moving to the forefront of legitimate workplace concerns as more and more individuals seek to balance family and work responsibilities," said CareGiverHelper CEO Steven Dworkin. "Estimates indicate that 25% - 35% of the workforce is now caring for a chronically ill or aging family member. This number will rise dramatically over the next decade as the elderly population increases, the size of the family decreases and the time span of care giving grows longer due to expanded lifetimes," he continued.

According to the MetLife Caregiver Cost Study, large and small businesses face relatively the same costs of care: $2,110 - $2,441 per employee. This translates to an estimated cost of $33 billion annually in absenteeism, tardiness, workplace errors, increased supervisory costs and employees exiting the workforce resulting in additional recruiting and training costs.

"CareGiverHelper offers a wonderful solution to dealing with the complexity of caring for a loved one and is a great complement to the rich resources available on LifeWorks Online," said Zachary Meyer, Ceridian LifeWorks senior vice president and general manager. "Our clients and their employees will now have access to a convenient area on the site where they can personalize and store important information about their health in a secure environment."

"CareGiverHelper makes it easier to coordinate care among family members and avoid burn-out and the premature institutionalization of a loved one" said Dworkin.
