To stop this workforce hemorrhaging South Florida companies are looking for methods to provide assistance in caregiving to employees to keep them on job and productive, while being sensitive to needs of employee.
There have been attempts at Corporate Elder Care programs, however few as comprehensive at A Good Daughter, (www.agooddaughter.com) based in Margate.
