Outstanding Child and Elder Care Benefits

Caring for children and adult and elder relatives can be difficult; doing so while working full time can be a herculean task. That’s why organizations offer child and elder care benefits. Designed to support employees and their families, child and elder care benefits give employees the peace of mind they need to focus on their careers.

Bright Horizons is the largest provider of employer-sponsored child care — including back-up child and elder care. With over 30 years of experience, our child and elder care benefits remain second to none.

Child Care Benefits

Working parents need reliable child care in order to stay productive and engaged. Children need social development; they need to build skills that will help them get ready for school. High-quality child care offers a win-win situation — it gives employees the support they need to focus on work, and it provides children with daily opportunities for social interaction, development of problem-solving skills, and more. 

And organizations benefit, too. When employees have access to child and elder care benefits, employee loyalty and retention rates go up. 

Elder Care Benefits

Approximately 20 million people become elder caregivers every year. Caring for a loved one isn’t just physically exhausting — it’s also an emotional rollercoaster. According to our research, employees spend an average of four years caring for an aging loved one, and 70% of caregivers will scale back their careers at some point in order to provide such care.

Elder care benefit programs can help. Providing employees with support throughout this complex, time-consuming, and emotional responsibility can give them more time to focus on their work. Plus, back-up elder care benefits, especially, can decrease employee absenteeism by giving employees a safety net for last-minute care needs.
