Family/Employee Caregiver Crisis with Larry Nisenson



A new Centers for Disease Control study reveals that Baby Boomer caregivers more often have chronic health conditions and frequent mental distress than non-caregivers - a situation that further intensifies the already escalated Family Caregiver Crisis as America continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic and the economic, healthcare and personal challenges it has created. With nearly one-quarter of Baby Boomers serving as caregivers, now more than ever, all of our 42 million family caregivers are struggling to cope with the emotional, physical and financial challenges posed by caring for aging loved ones, especially among the 6 in 10 caregivers who also work, creating a new “Employee Caregiving Crisis.”

A conversation with Larry Nisenson, Senior Vice President, Chief Commercial Officer for Genworth U.S. Life Insurance Segment, including CareScout® Caregiver Support Services, an innovative program designed to provide expert guidance and personal support for those struggling to find the right help for their loved one.
