Partnership for New York City Breakfast

On January 18, Frank Bisignano, Chairman and CEO of First Data, and brother of CaringKind Board member, Elvira Bisignano, hosted a breakfast for CaringKind to introduce members of the Partnership for New York City to our work.

Lou-Ellen Barkan, CaringKind’s President & CEO, spoke before more than 30 corporate executives about the importance of our work to New York City employers and business leaders and how our programs and services can be of help to their employees and families. Employees are caregivers and often have to make the difficult decision of reducing their workload, missing work, or even remaining in the workforce, to care for a relative with dementia. By contacting CaringKind, we can provide the counseling and resources needed to ensure that an employed caregiver has the tools to confidently navigate the complexities of dementia caregiving.

The Partnership for New York City represents the city’s business leadership and its largest private sector employers. Working with government, labor and the nonprofit sector it promotes economic growth and maintains the city’s position as a global center of commerce and innovation.
