Employers must start looking at benefits solutions for their workforce that integrate and amplify the existing employee benefits available to working caregivers.

Several years ago, I had to leave a job to take care of my mother during an end-stage cancer battle. This wasn’t an easy decision for me: I was 39, at the height of my career, and in a role that I had spent years building up to.

This decision didn’t come without consequences—to my career, my family’s finances, and my sense of self. And it was a loss for my employer as well; I forfeited the years of experience that contributed to my team’s overall success and left a senior role on the team empty.
