Are you working and juggling caring for a loved one?
Both the Co-op and the Pace Trustee understand how stressful it can be to balance later life caring responsibilities with work, often in addition to other commitments. As an organisation that is dedicated to looking after our people, we want to make you aware of Legal & General’s Care Concierge Service.
This fantastic service is available to you in full, which means you have access to extensive information and guidance when it comes to caring for a loved one.
The first step is recognising that you might be one of the 1 in 7 employees dealing with this right now. So, how do you spot the signs? Caring is not just bathing or dressing, there are much earlier signals, such as:
- Picking up shopping
- Help with cleaning
- Accompany loved ones to appointments
- Collecting prescriptions
- Making up the bed
- Providing emotional support
Whatever your situation is, the Legal & General Care Concierge service can help.
