CU Anschutz staff and full-time students can now find qualified child care and more through Care.com
When you find yourself needing help to care for your children, special needs family members, aging parents or pets, CU Anschutz Medical Campus employees and full-time students can use Care@Work by Care.com. This online portal provides access to search tools and databases where you can find qualified care resources for all members of your family.
All CU Anschutz staff, even part-time employees and full-time students, are eligible for a free membership to Care.com through the Care@Work program, a service that helps you locate and vet qualified babysitters, housekeepers, elder care referrals, special needs caregivers, dog walkers and pet sitters.
For families with kids, you can locate nannies, babysitters, tutoring and distance learning facilitators. The platform also provides community resources through learning pod and nanny-sharing options once you’ve established a family profile.
Care@Work offers a Backup Care option to full-time CU Anschutz and dual-campus consolidated (CSA/ASA) staff, as wells as residents and post-docs, who are experiencing unexpected care interruptions.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, disrupting schools, day cares and other vital services, many parents and guardians are scrambling to find qualified child care. The Care@Work Backup Care plan offers subsidized, vetted care for children and adults anytime your regular, scheduled care resource isn’t available as a result of COVID-19 disruptions.
There’s more to life than work, and your CU employee benefits can help you care for those who matter most.
