Caregiving can be a labor of love. At the same time, it can be overwhelming and challenging. This presentation covers different care scenarios and their associated budgeting, healthcare, and estate planning implications. We will discuss the importance of covering caregiving expenses while balancing a caregiver’s need to fund their own goals.


Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) brings together a variety of personal services under one roof. At one time or another, each of us may face problems or concerns related to areas such as mental health, financial and/or legal matters, alcohol or drug abuse, work-related stressors, marriage/family and caregiving issues, illnesses, accidents, and relationships. The EAP is a free and confidential counseling and referral service available to all employees and their dependents. Your EAP provides initial telephone consultation, problem assessment/clarification, short-term in-person counseling, and referral to treatment options through the employee's health plan or community resources, if needed.The Employee Assistance Program is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every single day of the year.
