Businesses are losing out on hundreds of millions every year because of employees trying to balance work with the demands of caring for relatives with dementia.
A report from the Centre for Economics and Business also found:
- Almost one in 10 dementia carers have to withdraw from work altogether and 12% have been forced to reduce the number of hours they spend at work.
- Experts estimated the total cost of those who leave employment or have to reduce their hours to care for a relative with dementia exceeds £1.6 billion.
- The report estimated 50,000 carers will have to quit their job due to caring responsibilities this year alone.
- And a further 66,000 will have to make adjustments to the number of hours they work.
