Employers are now facing cognitive decline challenges as the workforce population ages and many more people continue work into their 60’s and 70’s. Many employees who suffer from cognitive decline might not notice that their work performance is suffering but their managers feel the effects.

Cognitive decline also affects the workforce through its strain on employees who are responsible for caring for family members diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Fifty-seven percent of employees who care for an individual suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s said they had to go in late, leave early or take time off because of caregiving responsibilities, and one out of six dementia and Alzheimer’s caregivers had to quit work entirely because of their caregiving responsibilities. 

The SHRM Hawaii Educational Foundation invites you to join us for an informative presentation on Cognitive Decline in the Workforce. We’ll discuss the following issues:

  1. What is cognitive decline?
  2. Signs of cognitive decline
  3. Why is it important to address?
  4. How do we address it?
  5. Available resources
  6. What are the legal issues?
