Back-up child and adult/elder care
When your childcare or adult care arrangement falls through, Adobe offers a backup care program through Bright Horizons to provide temporary care for your loved ones so you can be at work. The program offers up to 100 hours of care (with a copayment) for a variety of family needs, like:
- Childcare: Center-based and in-home child care is available through a high-quality network of Bright Horizon facilities and providers. When your child is mildly ill, in-home care also available by home health care professionals.
- Adult care: In-home care is available for your adult relatives including parents, adult children, spouse/domestic partner and in-laws. Providers can help care for a family member who requires homemaker or companion services (such as household tasks, cooking, shopping and laundry), personal care services (such as help with dressing, bathing and toileting), or even medical care (such as the administration of medication, dressing and wound care, and blood pressure and diabetes monitoring).
- Self-care: In-home care is also available if you need any of the assistance listed in the adult care description above.
