Organizational Clients

Organizations can also be our clients. After all, organizations are made of human beings, and this means that sooner or later one of your employees will be impacted by illness, death, or simply aging loved ones in need to be taken care of in their family.

The number of professionals who are also caregivers of seriously ill, long-term, or simply aging loved ones increases at every day. This impacts on organizations with multiplied cases of staff stress, burn-out, illness, compromised performance, work-related accidents, sick call-in, and sick leave, among other issues such as impact on the general staff mood, organizational environment, and more. Studies show that long-term caregivers of a seriously ill or aging loved one end up with some major illness themselves, or seriously burnt out.

Bereavement and grief also have a tremendous impact on personal health, staff mood and organizational performance.

Recent studies show that the immune system of bereaved people is seriously compromised, and needs an average of two years to go back to its normal healthy levels. Symptoms such as depression, anxiety, difficulty to focus on, no concentration, insomnia, and slowed down general performance are present for months after the death of a loved one.  This means that bereaved staff are physically, emotionally, psychologically and cognitively vulnerable and in need of support.

We can help reduce the impact of long-term care-giving, grief and bereavement among your staff in many ways.

You can refer your staff to our Palliative Care or Bereavement and Grief Services.

We can go to you and provide related training, education, presentations, and support your staff, in your company.

If you are concerned about one of your employees facing any of these issues, all you need is to give us a phone call. It will be a pleasure to schedule a visit to your organization and know more about your specific needs.
