One firm to offer paid elder care

More employers are offering paid leave for all caregiving, including elder care.

The latest is Deloitte LLP, a professional services firm. It said last week it will offer up to 16 weeks paid leave for a wide range of caregiving, including maternity and paternity leave, elder care and aid for other sick family members.

The policy is a recognition that caregiving isn’t limited to just new parents, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.

It came after the company surveyed employees at a host of companies and found they wanted a broader leave policy.

Nearly 17 million Americans provide unpaid care to an adult, according to one report.

Other companies are expected to follow suit.
