When your child care or adult care arrangements fall 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:
- Backup child care: Center-based and in-home care for your child(ren) is available through a high-quality network of Bright Horizons centers and network providers. When your child is mildly ill, in-home care is also available.
- Backup adult/elder care: When Mom gets injured, Dad’s recovering from surgery or the regular caregiver calls in sick, Bright Horizons will arrange high-quality backup care for them.
- Self-care: In-home care is also available if you need any of the assistance listed in the “backup adult/elder care” description above.
