Supporting Caregivers: A Business Imperative

All New York State employers, HR professionals, aging services providers, non-profits, and partners are invited to a free conference on Supporting Caregivers: A Business Imperative. Join your colleagues on August 9-10 in Rochester or attend remotely for this hybrid program. 

This program will help businesses who are facing challenges with current employees that have caregiving responsibilities, a situation that impacts one in six employees at an annual cost to businesses of over $50 billion annually.

This conference is hosted by the New York State Caregiving & Respite Coalition (NYSCRC), in partnership with The Association on Aging in New York, Finger Lakes Geriatric Education Center, Lifespan of Greater Rochester, NYS Office of the Aging, and NYS Department of Labor.
