“We are excited to partner with Competitive Health and give families the support they need throughout the aging journey,” said Founder and CEO Andrew Parker. “There are over 40 million caregivers in the US today who also work full-time jobs and we want to give more employees the help they need for their loved ones.”
A recent poll found that 56% of caregivers also work full-time jobs. The poll also found that 70% of working caregivers suffer work-related difficulties due to their dual roles.1
