The EAP Helps with Childcare, Adult Care and Finances, Too

The EAP offers many resources to help you find care for loved ones and to get your finances in order.

You probably already know our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), provided by GuidanceResources, can offer help with emotional issues, like anxiety, depression, grief, trauma and more. But you might not realize they also offer other types of valuable assistance that can be customized for you and your family.

Find Childcare Providers Near You
It can be difficult to find a childcare facility, in your neighborhood or near work, that has current availability for your child(ren). Not only does the EAP provide a search feature, but you can ask them to do the search for you – including confirmation of availability. That can take a huge weight off your shoulders and, remember, it’s available at no cost to you. Why not let the EAP advisors give you a personalized recommendation that will best meet your needs?
