How does Corporate CARE Solutions work?
Corporate CARE Solutions provides in-home sick and backup child and adult care services. We partner with companies who are interested in assisting their employees nationwide with breakdowns in family care. This valuable benefit helps ensure employees no longer miss work unexpectedly due to care breakdowns. Knowing they can leave their loved ones at home with a professional caregiver allows employees to go to work with true peace of mind.
Is annual pre-payment for employee utilization required?
No. No prepayment. No overage fees.
Corporate CARE Solutions provides Pay-As-You-Go billing. Each month our clients receive a billing statement based on the prior month’s utilization. If no employee utilization occurred in the prior month – nothing is owed. Corporate CARE Solutions does not require an annual prepayment for employee utilization.
How does this benefit my company?
Corporate CARE Solutions enables your employees to quickly and easily resolve breakdowns in child and adult care without having to utilize their sick or vacation time. Now you can support your employees and ensure they are focused and productive contributors while on the job. By decreasing absenteeism and increasing employee performance, we’re helping you get the most out of your workforce, retain your best employees and grow your business.
Is our company eligible?
All companies are eligible. The Corporate CARE Solutions program is designed to be affordable and easy to implement. No company is too big or too small to take advantage of the opportunity to provide this benefit to its employees.
What is the difference between Sick Child Care, Backup Child Care and Adult Care?
Sick Child Care is provided when your employee's child(ren) are mildly ill, cannot attend regular daycare or must stay home from school.
Backup Child Care is provided when your employee’s regular caregiver is unavailable, school is closed or they require child care while on a business trip.
Adult Care is provided for your employee’s loved ones (18 years of age or older) who are in need of companion assistance, mildly ill or recuperating from an accident, injury or other situation requiring non-medical care. This includes spouses/domestic partners, parents and grandparents.
Is care always provided in-home?
Yes. At Corporate CARE Solutions, we recognize most children and elderly dependents are not comfortable being cared for in an unknown environment and most parents prefer to leave their children in familiar surroundings. That’s why we provide care only in-home or wherever the employee’s loved one is located. Thanks to our in-home only care program, employees can get to work quickly and easily without driving back and forth to a daycare facility. More importantly, they can rest assured their loved one will be relaxed, happy and well cared for while they focus on work.
The My Choice Care Program, if provided by your employer, will allow employees to select a caregiver or daycare center of your choice. Employee compensation will be provided.
Do you have a national network?
Yes. We come to you to provide sick and backup child and adult care wherever your employees reside, are traveling for business or require assistance for an elderly parent. Care is currently provided in the U.S. only. However, Corporate CARE Solutions will soon add services to Canada.
How quickly can we begin?
The Corporate CARE Solutions program typically begins within 60 days of contract completion. However, we realize every company has unique needs and can tailor a program to meet your company’s timeframe.
How far in advance may our employees request care?
Your employees may request care the same day or up to 1 month in advance.
How long does the CARE Request process take?
Once your employees are registered with Corporate CARE Solutions and have completed their profile, the CARE Request process takes just a few moments. Our website is simple to use and easily accessible from any mobile device.
