Taking Care of Yourself

Caring for an elderly relative can be very stressful. Your Employee Assistance Program provides employees and their eligible family members with up to 6 pre-paid counseling sessions per year. Counselors can help employees cope with the challenges of providing care for an elderly relative, and can help you find support groups to ensure you are linked with members in the community who are facing similar life challenges.
