Caring for your family while you are at work can often be a challenge. Whether you need after-school care, care for a child who is home ill or have the responsibility for aging parents, sometimes you need additional support, even at a moment’s notice. The College of Medicine knows that life can be unpredictable, so to help alleviate life’s unexpected challenges, we have decided to offer a new benefit to support a productive work-life balance for our faculty and staff.
UF COM is pleased to offer a new benefit, Care@ work by Care.com, to faculty and staff. Care.com is a family care service that can help you find caregivers for your whole family, including your child, parents/grandparents and/or pet. The program essentially functions as a clearinghouse for care providers available in our community. There is no cost to you to find vetted caregivers. Once you hire them, the cost of the service will be your responsibility. We hope you find this new service of value and we will survey users for their experiences to determine whether to continue using care.com after this year. Please let us know if you have questions.
