FACULTY BACKUP FAMILY CARE. Worried because regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable for a family member and you have to work?...

UC Berkeley has partnered with Bright Horizons to offer all ladder rank faculty members and lecturers SOE back-up care.

For example:

  • When your regular caregiver/stay-at-home spouse is unavailable.
  • When you are between child or adult/elder care arrangements.
  • When your child's regular child care center/school is closed.
  • When your child or adult relative is ill or needs assistance.
  • When you need temporary care for your loved ones so that you can do your work.

Rest easy, knowing this resource is available if you find yourself in a bind like this.

An additional resource to check out is the Be Well at Work - Elder Care Program, confidential and free assistance to faculty caring for or concerned about an elder or dependent adult.
