Improving Senior Care to Prevent Absenteeism with Dr. Doug Beach of WRAAA


The concepts of absenteeism and presenteeism are some of the most difficult to traverse as a business owner. How much do they really cost a company, and how can you, as a business owner, remain understanding but realistic? Usually these conversations revolve around personal sickness or diseases, but a more hidden cause of consistent employee attendance issues comes from senior care.

In 2015, almost 35 million Americans had to care for an elderly family member alone, and though working caregivers are resilient in their dual roles, employees are losing days of work time to care for seniors. This is encouraging not only more elder care services in employee benefit programs, but pushing the senior care industry to slow down the inevitable aging process for their patients. In this podcast, we’re joined by Dr. Doug Beach, CEO of Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging, who gives insight on how to solve the issues of absenteeism and presenteeism, as well as details the importance of social, intellectual, and physical activities for seniors.
