A break for Caregivers of Older Parents

Workers in Ontario are finally getting recognition for the essential services they provide their loved ones. The provincial liberals have just announced The Family Care Plan that will provide 6 months employment insurance for individuals caring for family members, to take effect January 2011. This is a break for workers overstressed with the competing demands on their time and energy. A positive change  is that there is no requirement for a doctor to sign that the person being cared for will die within 26 weeks. This was the requirement of the current leave providing 6 weeks which made it difficult to take.
