Charity Begins At Home And Spreads Itself Abroad

Having recently had to devote several days to helping my mother get herself admitted to a hospital, taking care of of her banking and financial concerns, as well as renting a small storage unit in her name, I can relate to the growing need for time off to care for ailing elders. My mother passed away 3 days after she was admitted to Lenox Hill Hospital, so I am grateful I was able to be there for her.

I am presently caring for a relative as well and after you use all the time allowed from work then you're on your own and this is a very scary situation. "Charity begins at home and spreads itself abroad."

The talk is family values, but the walk is corporate values. Let's walk the talk of family values. Stronger families benefit everyone, even corporations, in the long run.

If you need to take care of a sick family member, how can you afford not to get paid.

Let's take care of parents, kids and business by doing this. It just makes sense.

We often talk about the benefit for new parents from the Working Families Time to Care Act. But when you need to take care of an ailing parent, paid family leave makes a big difference for you too. No more delay. Tell your legislators to pass the bill today!
