Employers should consider a more inclusive definition of “caregiver,” argues employee caregiving platform Torchlight, which released its annual report titled “Modern Caregiving Challenges Facing U.S. Employees” in January. While caregiving has traditionally been defined as “care for an aging loved one or child with a diagnosis or disability,” the report says, the “modern caregiver” may or may not fit in that limited box — but they may have similar problems regardless.

The Caring & Family Finances Inquiry was established in January 2013 to examine the impact of an unprecedented combination of rising living costs and far-reaching changes to social security

The Inquiry’s remit was to:
Provide a definitive study into the financial impact of caring – with carers’ voices at its heart.
Assess the impact of the Government’s benefit changes on carers and their families.
Develop future policy on reforming the financial support available to families caring for older and disabled friends and relatives.
Supported by an Expert Panel made up of older and disabled people’s organisations, academia and social policy experts, the Inquiry has gathered evidence through public polling, survey data, case study modelling and evidence sessions with families across the UK
