Nearly two-thirds of all family caregivers work either full or part time, and an increasing number of companies are realizing that if they do not help employees cope with caregiving responsibilities, they may lose valuable workers.

The resulting lost productivity and increased absenteeism cost businesses as much as $29 billion a year, according to a MetLife study.
