Twenty percent of Americans are informal Caregivers. This figure translates to the workforce as well. Working Caregivers face the additional stress of balancing the needs of those they care for with their job requirements; this can leads to various performance related issues.
By partnering with VirtuALZ, employers can take an essential step in providing a much-needed benefit that one in five of their employees can utilize to provide a better life for themselves, their families, and most importantly those in their care. While we specialize in Alzheimer's disease and dementia care, we can support Caregivers of those with other health conditions and comorbidities.
The VirtuALZ Care Team provides professional recommendations, support, resources, and referrals to any Caregiver of someone living with Alzheimer's disease or Dementia as well as other comorbidities. These benefits are provided without requiring the Caregiver, or the one they are for, to leave the privacy and safety of their home.
We focus on proactive relationships with Caregivers to support them and diffuse the difficult day-to-day challenges they face. This relationship can reducing unnecessary and costly visits to the hospital, urgent care, emergency room and doctor.
The VirtuALZ Care Team includes social workers, registered nurses, and care navigators who provide valuable support to a Caregiver which contributes to reduced stress and provide better care.
