Congratulations! You’ve taken a step many forward-thinking organizations are taking: considering a supportive and flexible caregiving benefit. You’ve seen top-producing employees burned out doubling as unpaid caregivers for a family member and you want to help reduce their work, worry, and stress. You want to be an employer of choice, attracting and retaining quality talent, maintaining a diverse workforce, and helping your colleagues feel valued and heard. But, now what? How do you educate your team about this amazing benefit? How do you demonstrate the value of what you’re offering? How do you get your employee caregivers to take advantage of this new benefit?
Here’s how Dari by Homethrive can help!
The first step to getting support is knowing you need it. Believe it or not, most people actively caring for an aging or special needs loved one don’t consider themselves to be a “caregiver.” They also don’t think about all the hours, expenses, and stress associated with caring for their loved one. They may simply see themselves as a family member or friend lending a helping hand. And often, they’re unaware of just how much the work and worry of caregiving is impacting their life until they burn out and must make hard choices –such as leaving a job.
Our number one goal is to help them know they don’t have to walk this journey alone, and to show them all the ways we can help make their unique situation the best it can be. Need prescriptions delivered to mom so you don’t have to run to the pharmacy in the middle of your workday? We can do that. Want to talk to someone about how to involve your siblings in your dad’s care? We can do that, too.
Connecting with empathy
Dari by Homethrive’s expert Care Guides, credentialed aging and caregiving experts with years of experience helping families navigate challenges, are the power behind everything we do. Their personal connection with our members gives them unique insight into the needs and challenges of caring for a loved one, from how to manage challenging behavior to finding the right home delivery services. This insight, expertise, and empathy for the caregiver is what differentiates Dari by Homethrive.
Meeting employees where they’re at
Connecting with employees when they need it, how they need it, and where they need it is our priority. We offer 24/7 on-demand resources as well as live chat and recommendations, which can be accessed using any device. Our Care Guides are available to connect with members one-on-one when they need more personalized support for complex situations. And we stay in touch over email and social media to make sure members are getting the latest content and updates and continue to feel supported and part of a like-minded community.
Your organization has the opportunity to offer a one-of-a-kind, valuable caregiving benefit. Believe us, your team will thank you for thinking of them in their time of need, and you’ll appreciate how much more productive they can be with our team in your corner.
