Caregivers are Grateful for the Flexibility of Work from Home

A recent study from the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP highlights the challenges facing caregivers in the U.S.

According to the Caregiving in the U.S. 2015 study, 32% of caregivers are providing more than 20 hours of care a week, on average providing 62.2 hours of care weekly. More than half of the caregivers in the study also worked full- or part-time. It’s no wonder that caregivers report high levels of emotional stress.

The commitment needed to care for a loved one can be a challenge to your work-life balance, but having the flexibility of working from home can help.

We hear from many LiveOps independent agents who are caring for an aging parent, a sick spouse or a disabled child. Their emails are filled with gratitude that they have found a way to be there for their loved one, while still working.

"I love working with LiveOps! My dad was in a car accident in December 2013. My mother has severe dementia and cannot be left alone. My family and I took turns staying with her and with my dad after he was back home. I was the primary caregiver. I don't know of any other work with such a flexible schedule. Thank you, LiveOps." – Donna Read her story!

"I take care of my elderly father. LiveOps gives me the ability to care for him and also help with our family finances. If I were to work for a brick and mortar company, I would have to look for a nursing facility for him. Being an independent contractor means more to me than I can express. This has been a lifesaver for me." – Kathy

"I want to say thank you to LiveOps for the memories, moments and all the in betweens that my family has been able to have since I have been able to work from home." – January

"I am able to spend time with my husband who is retired from the military. I can take vacations any time of the year without asking for that time off. I can go spend time with my children, their school events, doctor appointments, sports, birthday parties, etc."

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
